SEOUL, Jan. 23 (Yonhap) -- The United States on Saturday voiced its support for five-way talks aimed at denuclearizing North Korea proposed by South Korean President Park Geun-hye, noting they will be a "useful step."

"The United States supports President Park's call for a five-party meeting. We believe coordination with the other parties would be a useful step in our ongoing efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula through credible and authentic negotiations," a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Seoul said in a short statement.

The statement came one day after the South Korean head of state proposed resuming the denuclearization talks, which have been boycotted by the communist North since 2009.
