U.S. will talk to North Korea only “under the right conditions”: Trump

Denuclearization is the primary factor in potential for talks with DPRK, White House says

The U.S. will talk to North Korea but only under the right conditions, U.S. President Donald Trump told a gathering of state governors at the White House on Monday.

The comments are Trump's first since Kim Yong Chol - a senior North Korean official - reportedly communicated Pyongyang's willingness to hold talks with Washington. Kim serves as vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) and director of the United Front Department of the WPK Central Committee.
