North Korea yet to express “commitment” to dialogue, says UN official

Back from the DPRK, Jeffrey Feltman says Pyongyang needs "time to digest" proposal

UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman on Tuesday said that North Korea had not given any signs of a desire to engage in dialogue over its nuclear program during his visit last week to Pyongyang.

United Nations political affairs chief said his delegation had stressed its belief that Pyongyang needed to “signal” its willingness to engage in a dialogue.
