The US side is ready to negotiate with the DPRK without “preconditions” at any time, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during a speech at the Atlantic Council in Washington.

“We are ready to speak at any time, when the DPRK wants. We are ready to hold the first meeting without preconditions,” he said.

Earlier, Tillerson accused Russia of violating compliance with the UN Security Council resolution on North Korea.

At the same time, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Russian side is observing the sanctions imposed on North Korea.
