North Korea may be open to talks with the U.S., says Seoul

Visiting officials expressed "willingness" for DPRK-U.S. talks in meeting with Moon: Blue House

Update at 0911 KST: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said that any talks would need to involve some North Korean commitment to denuclearization. "We will see if Pyongyang's message today, that it is willing to hold talks, represents the first steps along the path to denuclearization," she said in a statement. "In the meantime, the United States and the world must continue to make clear that North Korea's nuclear and missile programs are a dead end."

North Korean officials have expressed a "willingness" to engage in dialogue with the U.S., members of a high-level DPRK delegation to South Korea said on Sunday.
