WASHINGTON, May 23 (Yonhap) -- The U.S. government declined to bite Thursday on the latest carrot offered up by North Korea, saying it needs more details on the reported overture.
On a trip to Beijing, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's special envoy, Vice Marshal Choe Ryong-hae, was quoted as saying his country is willing to take China's advice and resume joint talks with the U.S. and other nations.
Choe made the remarks in a meeting with Liu Yunshan, the Chinese Communist Party's fifth-ranked leader, according to local media.
