“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,”
The U.S. says that its involvement with the Iranian nuclear deal sets an important precedence to open up negotiations with North Korea a State Department representative said on Tuesday.
“We are prepared for negotiations, provided that they are authentic and credible, get at the entirety of the North’s nuclear program, and result in concrete and irreversible steps toward denuclearization,” spokesman John Kirby told reporters according to Yonhap News Agency. “Pyongyang’s attempts to engage in dialogue while keeping critical elements of its weapons program running are unacceptable.”
In the Iranian deal, the U.S., U.K., France, China, Russia and Germany all agree.
