Newsline: US officials say diplomacy still an option despite North Korean missile ‘provocations’

U.S. officials on Tuesday continued to call for North Korea to return to the negotiating table days after Pyongyang conducted another round of missile tests. “We have made very clear that the door to diplomacy, the door to dialogue, remains open,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said at a Monday press briefing in Washington, D.C. North Korea “needs to cease its destabilizing actions and instead choose the path of engagement, something it has not yet done,” he said.

The country on Friday celebrated the 110th birthday of the regime’s founder, Kim Il Sung, a date it has marked previously with military parades and weapon displays.
