North Korea is willing to hold talks with a U.S. delegation, according to South Korea's leader.

In a statement, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said the North also agreed that "the inter-Korean relationship and North Korea-US relationship should develop together."

The presidential office didn't mention anything about the North's nuclear program or whether these talks would address it. The issue has long been a sticking point between North Korea and the U.S.

Still, this is also one of the first signs North Korea is willing to cooperate in a long time. But some people are skeptical — they think it might be about easing sanctions.
