He said dialogue could start but that North Korea should first halt "nuclear and missile provocations".
"The United States and President Donald Trump too have agreed to discuss any options it may take with South Korea regardless of what kind of options it takes".
Tension on the Korean peninsula has increased in recent months over concern that North Korea is close to achieving its goal of putting the mainland United States within range of a nuclear weapon.

Trump said nothing about North Korea during a raucous 25-minute exchange with reporters at Trump Tower in NY.
"The urgent task is to slam the brakes on the mutually provocative words and actions between North Korea and the United States", the Chinese statement said.
Supersonic B-1B bombers from the US Pacific Command's Andersen Air Force Base in Guam are often flown over the peninsula for joint exercises and to demonstrate Washington's "full range of military capabilities" - always infuriating Pyongyang. One positive sign of that, he said, was the latest round of sanctions on North Korea, orchestrated by the United States and passed at the United Nations Security Council.
President Trump responded to the Post report by vowing that North Korea "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".
