"The North side clearly affirmed its commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and said it would have no reason to possess nuclear weapons should the safety of its regime be guaranteed and military threats against North Korea removed", he said, adding that Pyongyang is willing to hold talks with Washington.

A senior South Korean official who had traveled to the North for historic talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the North also agreed to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on the country's border next month.

North Korea has vowed not to test missiles or nuclear weapons during proposed talks with the United States and South Korea, officials from South Korea said Tuesday after returning from meetings in Pyongyang.

However Nauert's statement illustrated the US's desire to keep applying pressure on Pyongyang over its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The provoking nation invites the world's ire and subsequent sanctions, only to then signal a desire to negotiate and willingness to change its provocative ways. They resulted in a series of co-operative projects that were scuttled during subsequent conservative administrations in South Korea.

South Korean and U.S. intelligence officials have long contended that North Korea ordered the killing. "It would be a great thing for the peninsula".

The U.S., in turn, has run hot and cold from one administration to the next on the value of pursuing diplomacy with Pyongyang.

It's been a tough, costly year for North Korea.

Later, Trump was asked at a news conference what he thought had made North Koreans open to talks.

The Reuters further reported that the new restrictions are mainly on "new or used vessels", electrical equipment, food and farm products and wood, the government said in the statement. "As long as the allied with the South, that would be considered a security threat".

Meanwhile, South Korean and U.S. military officials are preparing for another round of joint exercises, which are slated for April after being postponed due to last month's Olympics.

"Whichever direction talks with North Korea go, we will be firm in our resolve", Pence said. After all, South Korea today is recognised as an Asian economic miracle while North Korea barely has an economy.

North Korea apparently voiced its willingness to hold talks with the exchange for a halt either to joint South Korea-U.S. drills or the deployment of strategic American weapons in South Korea.

"They seem to be acting positively, but we're going to see", Trump said of North Korea's leaders.

"Our nuclear [program] is aimed at punishing and securing peace from aggressors and warmongers, not threatening anyone", the column continued.

North Korea's state media said Kim expressed his desire to "write a new history of national reunification" during a dinner Monday night that Seoul said lasted about four hours.

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., who has been leading the Armed Services Committee hearings in the absence of committee chairman Sen.

Moon acknowledged that nothing has been settled regarding the North's abandonment of its nuclear program. North Korea also tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with the theoretical range of striking anywhere in the U.S.

"Part of our response has to be we strengthen our alliances and we do not allow North Korea to drive a wedge between us", said Gregson. At the time, the international media, including the New York Times, called the offer "surprising" and "breakthrough" and voiced hopes that North Korea may chart a new course under the young leader Kim Jong-Un, who had ascended to thrown a year earlier.

If the enemies can get to talks, Trump will have to weigh his own concessions to shepherd the process to an agreement.

"Denuclearization talks are meaningless because North Korea already has become a country possessing nuclear weapons". The United States stations 28,500 troops in South Korea but denies any invasion plans.

North Korea is facing sanctions from the UN and the US for pursuing its nuclear programme.
