The United States is urging North Korea to return to the six-party talks amid concerns that North Korea has finished constructing the dome of its Yongbyon nuclear facility.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Wednesday that Washington's stance towards North Korea has not changed and the new leadership should show willingness to abide by international rules and obligations on nuclear issues.
Regarding South Korea's plans to resume Iranian oil imports, Nuland stated that some countries, including South Korea and China, have been exempted from the embargo, and the U.S. will continue holding talks with such nations.
