    Hah, they are showing how afraid of Trump they actually are after all.

    Another extremely huge win for Trump and his team.

    Great news, if it happens.

    I don't expect great results, but talking is better than threatening from afar.

    They wouldn't have agreed to talks if we followed Hillary's way and not threatened them.

    How long before the Republican President cuts Tillerson off at the knees again?

    I would say the over/under is 32 hours.


    It is amazing that Trump has claimed now is not the time for talking to North Korea (Trump says 'era of strategic patience is over' for North Korea - CNNPolitics) and has tasked China with solving the problem, he now seemingly agrees to talks without preconditions.

    Almost as if our foreign policy is directed by the need for the president to deflect form whatever stupid thing he said or tweeted that day.

    The report on this on the BBC is just saying that Tillerson is open to talks without preconditions, not that any are in the works.

    US ready for North Korea talks without preconditions, says Tillerson - BBC News

    No preconditions. All that posturing was to no effect. Trump gave in. Whatever happened to It won't happen?

    This seems to be correct.

    "open to talks" is not quite the same as "they are holding talks" as the OP claimed.
