The United States' National Security Advisor John Bolton on Saturday labelled the recent North Korean projectiles tests as a violation of UN Security Council resolutions, emphasising that sanctions must be kept in place.
The US official made the comments while addressing reporters here on Saturday.
However, Bolton said that the US is willing to resume talks with North Korea at any time, according to Al Jazeera.
The last US-North Korea summit earlier this year broke down without a joint agreement, as the two sides reportedly failed to resolve their differences on sanctions relief.
Bolton acknowledged that the US has not been "hearing much from North Korea" since their last summit in Hanoi, Vietnam.
