The United States should act to present a new strategy to revive denuclearisation talks, a North Korean diplomat in charge of U.S. affairs said on Thursday, warning time was running out ahead of a year-end deadline set by Pyongyang.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has said after the collapse of his second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in February that a third meeting would be possible only if Washington adopted a more flexible approach. Kim said he will wait until the end of the year.

The United States is in behind-the-scenes talks with North Korea over a possible third summit and has proposed reviving working-level negotiations, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday.

Trump said on Wednesday he would not meet with the North Korean leader during his trip to Asia for the G20 summit in Japan this week, which will include a visit to South Korea.
