President Donald Trump’s national security adviser said North Korea should consider accepting inspections of its nuclear facilities and declare it’s willing to give up its atomic weapons, moves that could lead to the U.S. negotiating with its government.

H.R. McMaster said he wouldn’t lay out preconditions for talks with North Korea but described confidence-building steps the country could take. He also said the Trump administration has gamed out “four to five” scenarios in which the North Korea nuclear threat is resolved.
