WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump's U.N. ambassador says the administration hasn't changed its conditions regarding talks with North Korea amid growing tensions over the North's nuclear and missile programs.

Ambassador Nikki Haley is making clear North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon) would first need to stop weapons testing.

Trump said on Saturday that he was open to talking to Kim.

Haley tells ABC's "This Week" that there's "no turnaround" in the U.S. position. She says Trump was reiterating "a lot of things have to happen before that actually takes place."

Haley points to a stop to testing as well as discussion about banning the North's nuclear weapons.
