Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. has “no new concerns” about North Korea’s nuclear arsenal following the death of dictator Kim Jong Il, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.
The U.S. is monitoring the situation in North Korea and has consulted with allies South Korea and Japan as well as China and Russia, the other members of the six-party talks on getting North Korea to shed its nuclear weapons, Carney said at a briefing.
Carney says it’s “much too early” to gauge the prospects of resuming talks on denuclearizing the Korean Penninsula.
