U.S., South Korean envoys urge Pyongyang to change its attitudeUpdated: 2014-01-29 14:34:32 (KST)
The South Korean and U.S. envoys on North Korea held talks this Wednesday on ways to resume the stalled six nation talks on denuclearizing North Korea.
After meeting with South Korea's top negotiator on North Korean nuclear issues, Cho Tae-yong, Glyn Davies, the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy, said both countries are hoping to see a sincere change in action from the North.
Cho reiterated the need for Pyongyang to change its attitude, saying that the North has nothing to gain from possessing nuclear arms.
In separate news, North Korean ambassador to China Ji Jae-ryong said Pyongyang supports the resumption of the six-party talks.
During a press conference at the North Korean embassy in Beijing on the same day, Ji said the North is on board with the six-party talks and said he wants the other countries to follow suit.
But he was quick to add that denuclearization cannot be achieved as long as the United States' hostile policy against the North continues, saying that Pyongyang will be compelled to possess the ams to protect itself from any outside threats.
