Pence: US ready for talks with Amid South Korea's efforts to promote dialogue between the United States and North Korea, U.S Vice President Mike Pence reportedly signaled that Washington is ready for talks, marking a notable change of stance.

Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin reported that Pence told him the United States could engage in dialogue after two substantive conversations with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in last week.

During his trip to South Korea to attend the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics' opening ceremony, Pence said he and Moon agreed further engagement would first be initiated with South Korea, and "potentially with the United States soon thereafter."

Rogin said that the proposed course of diplomacy signifies that the United States and its allies will not stop imposing pressure on Pyongyang until it takes clear steps toward denuclearization but the Trump administration is willing to sit down and talk with the regime while that pressure campaign is ongoing.
