SEOUL, Jan. 10 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday welcomed the resumption of talks between South Korea and North Korea this week, saying his country too may hold dialogue with the communist state at an appropriate time and under appropriate conditions.

In a telephone conversation with his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, the U.S. leader also noted the possibility of inter-Korean dialogue leading to the start of negotiations between his country and North Korea on ending the latter's nuclear ambition.

"After noting that South-North Korea talks may go beyond North Korea's participation in the PyeongChang Olympic Games and eventually lead to talks between the U.S. and North Korea for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the two leaders agreed to closely consult on the direction of talks between the South and North Korea in the future," the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said in a press release.
