North Korea: Let's Talk

North Korea indicated on Monday that it is prepared to end a year-long boycott of nuclear disarmament talks with the United States. The call comes a week after a North Korean official visited the United States on a rare trip. "The conclusion we have reached is that the direct parties, which are the North and the United States, must first sit down and find a rational solution," a North Korean government official told an official news agency. The statement is the strongest signal so far that the secretive state is ready to break from its isolationist past.
