A cautious President Donald Trump spoke of possible progress Tuesday after South Korea announced that North Korea would halt nuclear weapons and missile tests and put its entire atomic arsenal up for discussion if the U.S. agrees to enter a negotiation. It could also be "false hope," the American leader said.North Korea has yet to confirm details of the announcements from Seoul that appeared to open the door to dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang after a year of escalating threats by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and escalating fears of war.Vice President Mike Pence said the U.S. would remain "firm in our resolve" whichever direction talks with North Korea go.Tuesday's announcements were the most promising indication that the U.S. and North Korea could now talk.North Korea also said it would not need to keep its nuclear weapons if the U.S. drops its military threats and provides a credible security guarantee, Chung said.Chung said he will soon fly to the United States to brief officials about the outcome of the talks with North Korea.
