Written by News Room on April 18, 2022
The top US envoy for the country said on Monday, North Korea must return to a diplomatic path following Pyongyang’s blitz of missile launches and growing signs it is resuming nuclear testing.
According to reports, North Korea has carried out more than a dozen weapons tests so far this year, the latest one over the weekend a short-range test that state media claimed would enhance the efficiency in the operation of tactical nukes.
US Special Representative for North Korea, Sung Kim, arrived in Seoul for a five-day visit on Monday and met his South Korean counterpart, Noh Kyu-duk.
After talks, the two envoys jointly condemned recent escalatory actions by Pyongyang, including what they said were at least three launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).
Pyongyang has so far rebuffed offers of talks, blaming Washington’s hostile policies.
