North Koreans "want to talk," U.S. President tells reporters

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday confirmed that talks between the U.S. and North Korea will take place soon, while declining to directly comment on reports earlier in the day that the DPRK had tested a new-type submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).

Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Trump said that Pyongyang wants a dialogue with the U.S., and that the Americans are planning to meet with them.
