UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Wednesday urged the United States to talk directly to North Korea, which Washington again refused to do, and called Pyongyang's reported nuclear test "unacceptable."
He spoke as members of the Security Council negotiated on a resolution that would impose an arms embargo and some financial sanctions on North Korea in response to the test.
U.S. and North Korea should talk," he said. "I've always argued that we should talk to parties whose behavior we want to change, whose behavior we want to influence."
