US Ambassador John Bolton on Wednesday rejected an offer from a North Korean diplomat for direct talks with Pyongyang on a potential missile test, saying the threat of a launch was not the way to seek dialogue. "You don't normally engage in conversations by threatening to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles," Bolton said, "and it's not a way to produce a conversation because if you acquiesce in aberrant behavior you simply encourage the repetition of it, which we're obviously not going to do." "Obviously the priority remains trying to persuade North Korea not to conduct the launch," Bolton told reporters at UN headquarters in New York. US State Department deputy spokesman Adam Ereli echoed Bolton's comments saying direct talks with North Korea "are not in the cards."
