North Korea Says The US Must Unconditionally Accept Offer of Dialogue

Not likely to be accepted soon


North Korea's top diplomat has said the US must unconditionally accept its offer of dialogue if it wants to ease tensions on the divided Korean peninsula, adding that hostile policies by Washington against his country make war a possibility.

North Korea surprised many by offering to talk to the US and return to long-stalled international nuclear disarmament talks last month after weeks of tension following its nuclear test in February.
