North Korea expects working-level talks with the U.S. to begin soon: MFA
Washington must decide if negotiations lead to "crisis or opportunity," official warns

A senior North Korean official on Monday said they expected working-level talks with the U.S. to begin soon, while stressing that it will be up to Washington to decide whether dialogue serves as an opportunity to improve relations or deepens tensions between the two. 

In a statement a week after the DPRK formally expressed its hopes to resume nuclear negotiations, an official described as director-general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' (MFA) Department of U.S. Affairs said talks will likely be held in the "coming few weeks."
