A top North Korean diplomat says Pyongyang would be willing to meet with the Trump administration for negotiations “if the conditions are set.”
Choi Sun-hee, the top North Korean diplomat who handles relations with the US, spoke briefly to reporters in Beijing on Saturday en route to Pyongyang. She was traveling from Norway, where she led a delegation that held an informal meeting with US experts.
Choi did not elaborate on what the North’s conditions are, but her comments raise the possibility of North Korea and the US returning to negotiations for the first time since 2008, when six-nation talks over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program fell apart.
President Donald Trump opened the door this month to talks, saying he would be “honored” to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
