Are the phones out of order in the White House, or something? Transcript from Fox News:
VAN SUSTEREN: Back home, headlines now about North Korea, and so I’m going to try to pry some answers out of you on North Korea. What are we going to do about North Korea?
CLINTON: Well, you and I were just talking before the cameras started rolling because you’re one of the few people I know who’s actually been there and who understand that it is a — you know, it’s a different environment.
You’ve got to figure out how to convince them to act in what we consider to be, you know, the interests of the people of North Korea but also the interests of the rest of the world.
I have been very clear, President Obama has been very clear, we would like to get back to the kind of talks that led to the initial steps in their de-nuclearization. The six-party framework that involves all of the neighbors, each of whom have a stake in what happens in North Korea — we have offered that. I sent word that we would like to have our special envoy for North Korean policy go to Pyongyang. They didn’t want him to come.
So we’re working hard. And if they’re watching you, I’m sure that since you were there, you made a big impression, went to a karaoke bar in Pyongyang.
CLINTON: They probably still remember you. If they’re watching — if anybody from North Korea is watching this program with you, Greta…
VAN SUSTEREN: I do a mean Elvis karaoke.
CLINTON: I bet. You know, we’d love for them to begin to talk about what we can do together to fulfill the framework of the six-party talks.
