NKorea Says Talks with US Could Take Place in 'few Weeks'

Monday, 16 September 2019 06:39 AM

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea says diplomatic talks with the United States could resume in a "few weeks," but it will not consider abandoning its nuclear weapons unless external threats are fully removed.

A statement Monday attributed to a North Korean foreign ministry official says the upcoming working-level talks will be decisive in determining the fate of the country's diplomacy with Washington.

Negotiations have stalled since a February summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, collapsed over disagreements over sanctions relief in exchange for disarmament measures.

The statement says discussions of North Korea's denuclearization will only be possible when "threats and hurdles endangering our system security and obstructing our development are clearly removed beyond all doubt."
