The United States and North Korea are talking (quote) "virtually every day."
U.S. State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said on Thursday that Washington and Pyongyang continue to have conversations on a daily basis.
She even mentioned the different ways they exchange views, saying conversations are happening by phone, message and email.
Asked if the two sides are planning another high-level gathering in the near future, the spokesperson said there were no meetings nor travel plans to announce at the present time.
Her remarks come as U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton said earlier this week that President Trump recently sent a personal letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, offering to send Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang again to keep the denuclearization talks going.
However, the State Department's latest comments on communication between the U.S. and North Korea come amid rising concerns the denuclearization process has slowed to a snail's pace since the North Korea-U.S. summit in June.
