Despite the nuclear threats from North Korea, the United States said this Monday in Tokyo, that they remain open to negotiations with North Korea. The statement was made by U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, from the Japanese capital, and urged Pyongyang to attend the talks.
“The United States remains open to honest and credible negotiations on denuclearization, but the ball is in the field of Pyongyang,” Kerry said in his speech at the Institute of Technology.
Kerry said that the United States was supported by Beijing to calm the crisis together on the Korean peninsula, saying it is “fully determined to defend Japan” the nuclear-country threatened by North Korea, said at a news conference with his Japanese counterpart, Fumio Kishida, whom he just finished an interview.
On Friday, the North Korean regime threatened Japan with “nuclear fire” after Tokyo missile batteries deployed to destroy any North Korean missile that threatens its territory.
