The White House has said the United States remains open to diplomacy and dialogue with North Korea despite its recent launch of cruise missiles.
Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday that Washington's offer to meet Pyongyang anywhere, anytime without preconditions still stands.
She said the Joe Biden administration is prepared to engage and sit down with regime officials to achieve the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Earlier, North Korea's state-run media said the country had successfully test fired a newly developed long-range cruise missile over the weekend.
In response, the Pentagon said the launches highlighted the threats North Korea poses to other countries in the region, including South Korea.
