The Biden administration says it's still "carefully considering" its North Korea policy, shrugging off suggestions it's dragging its feet in its policy review.
State Department spokesperson Ned Price was asked Thursday if the policy has been delayed, since the White House said earlier that it was in the final stages.
Price said they're giving "careful consideration" to what he called "major decisions in a completely different context", and this, he said, applies to North Korea, too.
He added that the regime's nuclear and missile programs are profound challenges also that they've been consulting with Washington's allies and with former U.S. officials to fully understand North Korea's intentions.
