The United States is insisting North Korea return to six-party talks on its nuclear weapons program, despite North Korea's demands Washington first apologize for calling it an "outpost of tyranny." State Department spokesman Adam Ereli did not directly address North Korea's demands Wednesday, but said there is very active diplomacy on all sides aimed at restarting the talks. He said five of the six parties involved in the talks (meaning all but North Korea) want them to resume. North Korea demanded earlier Wednesday that the United States apologize for its "outpost of tyranny" description. A statement from North Korea's Foreign Ministry also insisted the United States renounce policies aimed at regime change in Pyongyang. Negotiators from several countries were meeting in Seoul Wednesday to discuss the stalled talks.
