The main US nuclear envoy could visit Pyongyang if North Korea pledges to end its boycott of international nuclear talks, the US ambassador to South Korea said in an interview with local media Thursday. "I think that possibility has never been ruled out," Ambassador Alexander Vershbow told Yonhap news agency, according to a Korean language report on his remarks. The North has in the past invited the US envoy, Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill, but Washington has rebuffed the request.
