The U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that his country is in direct contact with North Korea.

Mr. Tillerson advised the press ‘to stay tuned’ because the U.S. is probing the possibility of talks with Pyongyang.

The U.S. and North Korea heated up the international political landscape with the rhetoric of war and apparent refusal to take things to the tables.

The U.S. has repeatedly refused to sit for dialogues in the last few weeks. The U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly warned North Korea of ‘total destruction’ and ‘annihilation’ if it continues its missile and nuclear arms programs.

The U.S. ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley warned North Korea after they successfully tested a hydrogen bomb on September 03, 2017 that the “country will be destroyed”.

Mr. Tillerson advised the press ‘to stay tuned’ because the U.S. is probing the possibility of talks with Pyongyang.

The U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson’s latest remark of hope for talks came during his trip to China.

“We have lines of communications to Pyongyang,” he said during a trip to China. “We’re not in a dark situation.”

Things went really far when Trump addressed Kim as a rocket man and said “he is on a suicide mission” which led Kim to address Trump as “the mentally deranged US dotard.”

The Foreign Minister of Russia described the rhetoric between the U.S. and North Korean leaders as the quarrel between preschool toddlers.

The newly issued remarks from the chief diplomat of the United States, however, indicate a new chapter of dialogues and de-escalation of tension on the Korean Peninsula.
