This appeared a bit short of an outright precondition, though Kim insisted that North Korea views United States hostility as "the root cause of all problems" in the region. A U.S. State Department spokesman said the United States remains open to talks with North Korea but the country would have to "cease all its illegal activities and aggressive behavior in the region".
