Pyongyang earlier offered to resume nuclear talks if Washington
tabled new proposals
North Korea has launched two projectiles toward the sea, South
Korea’s military said, hours after Pyongyang offered to resume
nuclear diplomacy with the United States but warned its dealings
with Washington may end without new proposals.
The launches on Tuesday and demand for new proposals were
apparently aimed at pressuring Washington
to make concessions when the North Korea-US talks restart.
Pyongyang is widely believed to want the United States to provide
security guarantees and extensive relief from US-led sanctions in
return for limited denuclearisation steps.
