U.S. Envoy Urges N. Korea to Respond to Calls for Dialog: Yonhap
(Bloomberg) -- President Joe Biden’s envoy for North Korea reiterated the U.S. is ready for dialog without preconditions, urging the country to respond to its offers, Yonhap reported.
The U.S. has made it clear it has no hostile intention at all, Yonhap said, citing U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Sung Kim. He spoke after meeting South Korea’s Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs Noh Kyu-duk on Sunday.
The U.S. hopes to keep cooperating with South Korea in seeking various ideas and initiatives, including the declaration of the end of the war on the Korean peninsula, the report quoted Kim as saying.
Last week, the U.S. condemned North Korea for firing a ballistic missile from a submarine. The latest launch follows a series of tests in September of weapons capable of delivering nuclear warheads to South Korea and Japan.
