US fears ‘moving too soon’ on North Korea, State Department official says

Washington must consult Seoul and Tokyo on “pressure options” and the “potential for future diplomacy,” official says

Roughly three weeks after U.S. President Joe Biden settled into the White House, a State Department official said that there’s a risk in “moving too soon” on North Korea and that Washington must sync up with Seoul and Tokyo before moving forward.

On Tuesday, State Department Press Secretary Ned Price said that the United States will “adopt a new approach that keeps the American people and our allies safe,” and that the White House will confer with allies on “ongoing pressure options and [the] potential for future diplomacy” with the DPRK.
