The United States and North Korea have announced their plans to carry on ‘working-level’ negotiations in the following week, CNN reported citing the U.S. Department of State.
“I can confirm that U.S. and DPRK officials plan to meet within the next week. I do not have further details to share on the meeting,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement Tuesday.
Denuclearization talks were held off following the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un, after the G20 Summit in Japan.
While North Korea has put a moratorium on testing long-range missiles following three meetings between Trump and Kim, the country has continued to test short-range ballistic missiles and has made no firm commitments to stop testing submarine launched missiles.
