North Korea has again said it would be willing to meet with representatives from Washington if certain conditions were met, as the country's UN delegation argues against sanctions levied against it, Sputnik reports.

Speaking with reporters at Beijing Capital International Airport on Friday, Director General of North Korea's Foreign Ministry's North America Bureau Choe Son-hui offered that Pyongyang would be willing to hold "dialogue under [the] right conditions" with the US.

The country has said in the past that it wishes to have high-level bilateral talks with the US; the US has always stipulated preconditions for such talks be met.

After leading a North Korean delegation to meet in Oslo, Norway, with a group of US foreign policy experts from the New America think tank, Choe made her remarks at China's largest airport while transiting to Pyongyang, according to Yonhap.

The North Korean mission had been appealing to the UN to prevent additional sanctions from being levied on the increasingly isolated country.
