ABC News' Kirit Radia reports:

The US shifted its policy today, saying it is now willing to meet one on one with North Korea if that is helpful to bring Pyongyang back to the nuclear negotiations.

US envoy Stephen Bosworth got the green light from the other members of the 6-party talks, negotiations to rid Pyongyang of its nuclear program, during meetings in the region in recent days.

North Korea has extended an invitation for Bosworth to visit Pyongyang, but officials say it’s unclear where or when a meeting could take place.

“It's designed to convince North Korea to come back to the six- party process and to take affirmative steps towards denuclearization,” State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said of the decision to meet.

Speaking on background, a senior US official said: “Our assessment, after consulting with the other parties in the six-party process, is that if a bilateral discussion can be an effective mechanism to get North Korea to come back to the six-party process… so that we can remind them of what their obligations are and to push them to take affirmative steps… then that would be a potentially useful step.”

North Korea has recently said it will never return to the nuke talks… so is there an expectation now that they might?

“We’ll wait and see,” the senior official said.

Cave to international terrorists? Yeah, we're sweating. There is just no reason to ignore them. They pose no threat if we talk. If we keep refusing, they might launch a missile (that has about a 2/3 chance of detonating) at Japan, and then get wiped off the map.

What are we losing by talking?

Yeah, what did the JCS Chief say when NK said they were going to wipe the US off the map? "What for and with what?"

Nah, I don't think they'd launch a missile, they'll just keep sending their stuff to Iran, etc.

And 2/3 chance? Really? You think it has that good of a chance?

Credability. The US has always said no to one on one talks, now we suddenly say yes? Anyone in the future know nows that they just have to wait and they can get what they want, since the US doesn't have patience.
