United Nations, Dec 16 (ANI): United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States would not accept any preconditions for diplomatic talks with North Korea. He added that the Trump administration and the international community would continue to pressurize North Korean leader Pyongyang. "We are not going to accept preconditions," Tillerson told reporters. He added, "As I said earlier this week, a sustained cessation of North Korea's threatening behavior must occur before talks can begin. North Korea must earn its way back to the table," Tillerson said. "The pressure campaign must, and will, continue until denuclearization is achieved. We will, in the meantime, keep our channels of communication open."
