The White House says the United States remains open to engagement with the DPRK, and says the country must take steps toward denuclearization for that to occur.

At a news briefing on Monday, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Washington would make judgments on DPRK’s new leadership, based on how the government handles itself going forward, particularly on the nuclear issue.

Carney added there has not been any decision made about US food aid to DPRK.
