>> A diplomatic relationship that's gone from bad to worse. But, now, there are rumblings that Washington is getting ready to bring senior officials from North Korea over for talks. The Washington Post reporting Sunday that preparations are already underway. It would not be an official state visit, just a meeting between some top North Korean officials and former US officials.
But sources told the Washington Post, it could be a signal that leader Kim Jong-un wants to be in touch with U.S. President Donald Trump's administration. If talks do get the green light, they would be the first of their kind in more than five years. For now, the White House has been quiet on the report, saying only that the U.S. Government has no plans to meet with North Korea.
Meanwhile, Pyongyang is still pushing ahead with another kind of diplomatic strategy. A ballistic missile that could carry a nuclear warhead all the way to the United States. Pyongyang tested a missile earlier this month Leading Donald Trump to call North Korea a big, big problem.>>
