N. Korea Rejects Tillerson's Unconditional Talks Offer

N. Korea Rejects Tillerson's Unconditional Talks Offer”

North Korea's Rodong Simun daily, issued by the ruling Workers' Party, criticized the move in a commentary, saying that Washington's offer of dialogue "goes back and forth without consistency". Pyongyang has continued to test nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions. This includes the ability to intercept missile threats prior to launch.

But the current Conservative Opposition now says it is time for Canada to talk to the US about joining the program.

Earlier this month, McMaster called the communist nation "the greatest immediate threat to the United States" and said that the likelihood of war between the U.S. and North Korea is "increasing every day".

The senior State Department official says a range of continental and global issues will come up, including plans to host worldwide talks in Canada early next year on the Korean crisis.

"Of course, North Korea poses a grave direct threat to all nations including China and Russian Federation, but what happens when North Korea gets this capability? We've got a good partnership with Canada on the issue", said the State Department official, speaking on background.

Tillerson said last week that the U.S.is ready to sit down with North Korea "any time the North would like to talk", before he later clarified that the regime should earn its way back to negotiations.

South Korea and Japan are highlighted as key allies in building up a strong defense network in the region, and in achieving "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization on the Korean peninsula". They have told The Canadian Press that Tillerson saw the value in Canada taking the initiative forward.

"On the surface, waves are rolling, but beneath it, there are undercurrents that are consistent", he said of Washington's policy toward North Korea.

Rumours are rampant in Washington that he might not be long for the job as his country's top diplomat with anonymous sources telling reporters about tension between the White House and his department.

"That's ridiculous", Tillerson replied.
