US hopes N. Korea will respond to outreach - envoy

United States Special Representative for North Korea Policy Sung Kim said that Washington hopes North Korea will "respond positively" to its "outreach" regarding the resumption of nuclear talks.

During a visit to Seoul, the US envoy added Pyongyang's recent missile launches were "concerning and counterproductive" and urged North Korea to refrain from further missile tests.

Meanwhile, North Korean propaganda website Meari accused the US of seeking to raise military pressure on Pyongyang by engaging in defense dialogue with South Korea.
