White House officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment. U.S.-North Korea talks have been stalled since a failed summit in February between Trump and the North Korean leader in Hanoi, Vietnam. A U.S. official said on Wednesday the United States had no pre-conditions for new talks, but that progress would require meaningful and verifiable North Korean steps to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

Trump is due to visit South Korea next week for meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in after taking part in the G20 meetings in Japan.
