“Progress in the nuclear talks with Iran clearly demonstrates our willingness to engage countries with whom the United States has long-standing differences,” and that includes the tyrannical regime in North Korea, State Department spokesman John Kirby said Tuesday, according to a report from South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.
Kirby said the U.S. was willing to negotiate with the despotic leadership of North Korea, “provided that they are authentic and credible, get at the entirety of the North’s nuclear program, and result in concrete and irreversible steps towards denuclearization.”
The State Department spokesperson said that a deal with North Korea has been a priority for U.S. policy, according to reports.
“Denuclearization remains our top priority. We remain in close contact with the other Five-Party partners on our shared goal of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in a peaceful manner,” Kirby added.
China, an ally of Kim Jong-un’s Hermit Kingdom, has similarly called for negotiations akin to the Iranian nuclear deal, which would see sanctions removed from North Korea.
