Washington should not accept Pyongyang's nuclear status, United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in an interview.
вЂњWe do not and should not accept [North Korea's nuclear status], but let's be honest: this is a difficult problem. Previous US administrations, Republican and Democratic, have tried to solve the problem, but none have succeeded. The [Nuclear] program has become more dangerous and more developed,вЂќ Blinken said in an interview with ABC.
According to him, all the previous approaches of the administrations of different American presidents did not work.
вЂњWe are conducting an active review, looking at what previous administrations have done. We work closely with our allies and partners, primarily with South Korea and Japan, вЂњ he said.
Earlier, US President Joe Biden said that the main foreign policy priority of the United States is the problem of North Korea and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. He also expressed readiness to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
