U.S. national security adviser John Bolton said on Wednesday North Korea's recent missile tests did not violate a pledge its leader Kim Jong Un made to President Donald Trump.
However, Pyongyang has yet to say when working-level talks on denuclearization would resume despite a meeting between Kim and Trump on June 30 when they agreed to revive talks.
Two short-range ballistic missiles were launched on Tuesday at a low-level, which South Korea claims shows the North was testing their evasive capacities.
US national security adviser John Bolton (pictured addressing the media at the White House yesterday) has insisted that North Korea's missile test on Tuesday did not violate pledges made to Donald Trump
Pyongyang fired short-range missiles. They are yet to approach America about reviving stalled talks that Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un promised to resume
Bolton told Fox Business Network the U.S. side was still waiting to hear from North Korea about arranging the talks.
'The firing of these missiles don't violate the pledge that Kim Jong Un made to the president about intercontinental-range ballistic missiles,' he said.
'But you have to ask when the real diplomacy is going to begin, when the working-level discussions on denuclearization will begin, as Kim Jong Un again said on June 30 he was prepared to do. We're still waiting to hear from North Korea.'
