US Ready to ‘Reach Out’ to North Korea

After weeks of increasingly hostile rhetoric, the U.S. is ready to “reach out” to North Korea’s leadership, Secretary of State John Kerry said in Japan on Sunday.

The Obama administration is just waiting for the right moment.

“We are prepared to reach out but we need (the) appropriate moment, appropriate circumstance,” Kerry told reporters in Tokyo, according to pool reports.

America’s chief diplomat added that a key component of the talks would be North Korea taking steps toward giving up its nuclear programs.
