U.S.-North Korea talks are possible, and the White House intends to negotiate with Pyongyang, but that could only happen if the DPRK puts its plans on nuclear weaponry development aside. Rex Tillerson, the U.S. Secretary of the State said that as quoted by CNN.  

‘We are not your enemy, we are not your threat, but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us and we have to respond. We would like to sit and have a dialogue about the future’, Tillerson said, adding that other options ‘are not attractive’.

During the press briefing at the State Department, the Secretary of the State said his country does not seek ‘regime change or sending the military north of the 38th parallel’ (the division line between North and South Korea, - 112 International). But test launches of the two IBMs that previously took place are unacceptable, Tillerson stressed.
