WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The United States and other parties in the six-party talks over North Korea's nuclear program are "ready to return to the table at an early date and without preconditions," U.S. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Tuesday.
"It's only North Korea that claims current conditions are unfavorable" for talks, Boucher said.
"For our part, the United States stands ready to return to the talks to discuss the proposals that have been on the table since June."
