North Korea's Kim 'open to dialogue' with South Korea, will only use nukes if threatenedBy Heekyong Yang and Josh Smith SEOUL (Reuters) – Kim Jong Un warned the United States on Monday he had a “nuclear button” on his desk ready for use if North Korea was threatened, but offered an olive branch to South Korea, saying he was “open to dialogue” with Seoul.
