U.S. 'a long way' from negotiations with North Korea: Tillerson

U.S. wary of North Korea weapons advances while talks take place U.S. 'a long way' from negotiations with North Korea: Tillerson

Disarmament and Arms Control Minister Winston Peters says the New Zealand government welcomes the United States willingness for talks with North Korea, and North Korea's reported openness to discuss denuclearisation. He said it was particularly important for the U.S. and North Korea to make contact and engage in talks as soon as possible. However his Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told Congress he was "quite skeptical" and Vice President Mike Pence said the United States position towards North Korea would not change "until we see credible, verifiable, and concrete steps toward denuclearisation".

"I reiterate our desire for more African nations to apply concrete diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea", Tillerson said during an earlier press conference in Addis Ababa according to a State Department press release issued on Thursday.

He says the USA must be "very clear-eyed" and realistic.

China has said it is "cheering on" North and South Korea after they agreed to hold a leaders' summit on reducing tensions on the peninsula.

Abe said he will be briefed next week by one of South Korean envoys who met with leader Kim Jong Un recently. "We call on the parties, particularly the United States and the DPRK, to engage in dialogue sooner rather than later", he said.

North Korea agreed to shut down its nuclear and weapons programme in exchange for aid and reduced sanctions.

He said China, North Korea's main economic supporter, hoped both sides would seize the change to denuclearise the peninsula while acknowledging each others' "legitimate security concerns". "I think the first step - and I've said this before - is to have talks, have some kind of talks about talks, because I don't know yet, until we are able to meet ourselves face to face with representatives of North Korea, whether the conditions are right to even begin thinking about negotiations".

China says its proposal for a "dual suspension" of North Korean nuclear tests in return for a halt to war games by South Korea and the US has proven successful.
