DPRK, US to hold working-level talks on Oct 5
Pyongyang and Washington have agreed to have preliminary contact on October 4 and hold working-level negotiations on October 5, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said in a statement released by the official Korean Central News Agency that the DPRK delegates are ready to enter into the working-level negotiations.
"It is my expectation that the working-level negotiations would accelerate the positive development of the DPRK-US relations," the statement said.
The denuclearization talks between Pyongyang and Washington have hit a stalemate since the second summit between top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump in Hanoi in February ended without any agreement.
