White House: Now is Not Time for Talks with N. Korea

The White House says that now is not the time for talks with North Korea.

"No -- this is -- we've been clear that now is not the time to talk. The only conversations that have taken place or that would -- would be on bringing back Americans who have been detained, like that with Otto. Those were the type of conversations that this administration was willing to have. Beyond that there will be no conversations with North Korea this time."

During a news briefing on Monday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders echoed President Donald Trump's Sunday tweet that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is wasting his time trying to negotiate with North Korea.

Secretary Tillerson told reporters Saturday that the U.S. has direct lines of communication to North Korea and is probing the country's willingness for talks.
