A senior North Korean diplomat says North Korea and the United States have agreed to resume nuclear negotiations on October 5 following a months-long stalemate over withdrawal of sanctions in exchange for disarmament.
North Korean First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said in a statement on Tuesday that North Korea and the United States will have a preliminary contact on October 4 before holding working-level talks on October 5.
Choe expressed optimism over the outcome of the meeting but did not say where it would take place.
