“We’ll talk” to North Korea, says Mike Pence
In an apparent shift, Vice President says U.S. open to talks that don't start about denuclearization

The United States is prepared to talk to North Korea without preconditions, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said in comments published on Sunday evening.

The statement appears to represent a significant shift in the U.S. position on North Korea – which has until now been that Pyongyang would have to agree to talking about complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.
