  • The US and North Korea are in direct communication “virtually every day,” according to a US State Department spokeswoman.
  • Talks appear to have hit a roadblock as both sides are beginning to publicly express their frustration with each other.
  • The US is concerned about reports that North Korea is continuing to advance its weapons programs, while the North is irritated by the perpetuation of sanctions and limited US interest in a peace treaty to end the Korean War.

The US and North Korea are apparently in regular communication, engaging one another by phone, email, or message on an almost-daily basis even as both sides express frustration with the other.

“I can tell you we continue to have conversations virtually every day, every other day or so with the North Koreans,” US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert explained to reporters Thursday, “When I say ‘conversations,’ that can be by phone, that can be my message, that can be by email. We continue to have conversations with the government,” Nauert said.
