This significant development comes days after United States has warned that North Korea's latest ballistic missile launch is potentially more unsafe than previous launches. The missile flew some 700km (435 miles), reaching an altitude of 2,000km and landing in the sea west of Japan.
"Even so, the U.S. wants to exert pressure on Pyongyang to make it suspend work on developing nuclear weapons, given that North Korea is making some progress in this field".

Trump later said he would be "honored" to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un under "the right circumstances".
