Top Office: Suspending Nuclear Test would Create Positive Atmosphere for Talks

The presidential office has said a suspension in nuclear tests and missile launches by North Korea would create a positive atmosphere for dialogue.
 
A senior presidential official made the remark Wednesday after being asked about U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's comment that Washington is willing to talk with North Korea if the regime suspends its nuclear and missile tests.
 
However, the official was quick to add that the top office hasn't set an explicit condition for engaging in talks.
 
Asked about the government's North Korea policy, the official said Seoul could simultaneously pursue dialogue and pressure in order to resolve Pyongyang's nuclear issue. The official added that at the moment, the most important task would be for the North to halt its nuclear and missile program and show good faith.
 
Regarding a remark by the president's envoy to the U.S., who said President Moon Jae-in's stance on the U.S. antimissile battery THAAD will differ from his stance on the campaign trail, the official said he has no information.
