However, Kim Yo-jong – a key advisor to her brother – seemed to want to dismiss the expectation of a forthcoming resumption of negotiations.

The United States appeared to be seeking “to feel good about itself,” it said in a statement released by the official KCNA news agency.

Meanwhile, the United States special representative for North Korea declared on Monday, during a visit to Seoul, that Washington was willing to meet with Pyongyang “wherever and whenever and without preconditions.”

Hours before Kim Yo-jong’s statement was released, US envoy Sung Kim met with the South Korean Unification Minister and reiterated the will of the Joe Biden government to speak with North Korea.
