WASHINGTON: The White House said that economic sanctions pressuring North Korea to end its nuclear program must continue after Pyongyang said it was open to talks with the United States.

“We will see if Pyongyang’s message, that it is willing to hold talks, represents the first steps along the path to denuclearization,” the White House said in a statement.

“In the meantime, the United States and the world must continue to make clear that North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs are a dead end,” the White House said.APP/AFP
