Return to six-party talks unconditionally: US to N Korea
Washington: The Obama administration on Monday insisted that North Korea should return "without precondition" to the six-party talks on its nuclear programme.
"Nothing has changed. Our position remains that North Korea should return to the six-party process without preconditions," Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, PJ Crowley, told reporters at his daily news briefing.
"The ball is in North Korea`s court," Crowley said in response to a question.
"We have said if North Korea comes back to the six-party process and if it does begin to demonstrate and take affirmative steps towards denuclearisation, we would be prepared to have a wide-ranging bilateral or multilateral dialogue on other issues, and those could proceed within the six-party process as well," Crowley said.
The dialogue route is available to North Korea, but Pyongyang has to first commit to come back to the six-party process, the top official added. PTI
