UNITED NATIONS, Jan 13 (Reuters) – North Korea offered on
Tuesday to meet directly with the United States in a bid to sway
Washington after it rejected Pyongyang’s proposal to suspend
nuclear tests if annual U.S. military drills with South Korea
North Korea’s Deputy U.N. Ambassador An Myong Hun told a
news conference at the United Nations that if Pyongyang’s
proposal was accepted then “many things will be possible this
year on the Korean Peninsula.” He did not elaborate.
