Speaking in the South Korean capital, Kerry said Washington had offered the North the chance of an improved relationship in return for signs of genuine willingness to end its nuclear program. “To date, to this moment, particularly with recent provocations, it is clear the DPRK is not even close to meeting that standard,” Kerry told a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se. “Instead it continues to pursue nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.” The secretive North, officially named the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), is already under heavy U.N., EU and U.S. sanctions for its missile and nuclear tests.
