Despite Strong Words, Diplomacy With North Korea Continues

Despite the bellicose rhetoric coming from President Trump, the White House has quietly engaged in back channel diplomacy with North Korea for months, a new report said Friday.

The talks focused on Americans imprisoned in the communist dictatorship and fraying relations between the long-time foes, The Associated Press reported.

The two sides had discussions to secure the June release of an American university student, who arrived back home in a coma and later died.

But it wasn’t known until now that the contacts have continued, or that they have broached matters other than US detainees.
