Excerpt from AP video of Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg after meeting with South Korean Officials

DEPUTY SECRETARY STEINBERG:  We've indicated that we're prepared to have a direct engagement, a bilateral engagement, with North Korea if it's in aid of bringing North Korea back in the six-party talks and recommitting to the denuclearisation. I think it's important for North Korea to make clear if it's prepared to engage on those terms.
