The nuclear envoys US, Japan, and South Korea held talks regarding continuing the Denuclearisation talks with North Korea. The meeting took place soon after few days when Pyongyang announced that it tested a new missile.
According to analysts, the new long-range cruise missile tested by North Korea could have nuclear capabilities.The recent developments in the North Korea are a reminder for the three envoys that breaking the halted talks with North Korea are extremely important along with improved cooperation and communication among the three nations.
The Denuclearisation talks between US and North Korea have progressed no further since 2019 because North Korea is demanding relief on sanctions. As North Korea says that the US has not made any policy changes regarding the sanctions, Pyonyang is reluctant to continue the talks.The US is the biggest economic and military ally of its two missile partners. But, on the other side US’s ties with other Asian neighbours have been strained over sovereignty issues.
