Despite the bluster from Pyeongyang, the U.S. insists it remains firmly committed to diplomacy with North Korea.
The response by the State Department Monday came some 24 hours after the North slammed a U.S. decision to lift all restrictions on South Korean missiles.
It said they are aware of the North's criticism, but stressed the Biden administration's new North Korea policy calls for a calibrated and practical approach, to ensure the security of the U.S., its allies, and deployed forces.
