According to the head of the press service of the American Foreign Ministry, Ned Price, the United States is waiting for a response from Pyongyang.
The Washington administration has made it clear to Pyongyang that it has no hostile intentions towards the DPRK and is now awaiting a response from the North Korean side. This was stated on Tuesday at a regular briefing by the head of the press service of the American Foreign Ministry, Ned Price.
“We believe that diplomacy is the most effective way <…> achieving the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula,” he said. “We have made it clear to the DPRK that we have no hostile intentions towards the country and are ready for diplomatic interaction with it,” Price added. “We have made this clear in a series of statements and are now waiting for a response.”
The representative of the Foreign Ministry was also asked whether a meeting of representatives of the United States and North Korea is possible at the 26th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, which will begin in Glasgow on October 31. Price noted that he “does not know about any plans” to conduct such contacts.
