DW News published this video item, entitled “US seeks dialogue with North Korea ‘anywhere, anytime’ | DW News” – below is their description.
“Anywhere, anytime and without preconditions” – that’s Washington’s latest offer to Pyongyang on opening a dialogue over its nuclear program. The Biden administration’s new envoy for North Korea was in Seoul on Monday to push forward efforts to restart the stalled diplomacy.
The US, South Korea, and Japan are looking for ways to convince Pyongyang to stop developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Washington has promised a “calibrated, practical” approach, and last week leader Kim Jong Un gave his first reaction to that policy. He ordered his officials to prepare for both dialogue and confrontation, with the emphasis on the latter. Here’s the US envoy earlier today.DW News YouTube Channel

In This Story: Nuclear Weapons
A nuclear weapon (also called an atom bomb, nuke, atomic bomb, nuclear warhead, A-bomb, or nuclear bomb) is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb). Both bomb types release large quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter.
A nuclear device no larger than traditional bombs can devastate an entire city by blast, fire, and radiation. Since they are weapons of mass destruction, the proliferation of nuclear weapons is a focus of international relations policy.
