WASHINGTON, July 22 (Yonhap) -- A senior U.S. State Department official urged North Korea Monday to make a "fundamental choice" between endless isolation and a path for the well-being of its people.

Daniel Russel, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, stressed the U.S. will stick to a "rules-based, principled approach" toward North Korea despite Pyongyang's recent peace offensive.
