Bill Richardson, the New Mexico governor who is currently visiting North Korea, reportedly made some proposals to North Korea, amid high tensions on the Korean Peninsula as South Korea plans a live-fire drill.
According to CNN, Richardson met with North Korea’s top nuclear negotiator Kim Kye-gwan for one and a half hours and said he would expect the current tension would lessen if his proposals are accepted by North Korea, Yonhap said.
Richardson didn’t disclose what the “proposals” were.
Richardson sees the current inter-Korean situation as the most serious crisis since the Korean War, the report said.
"There's enormous potential for miscalculation," he said, according to Reuters.
Richardson also urged the North to show restraint and allow contentious military exercises by the South to go ahead, said Reuters.
