First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui said that Washington and Pyongyang agreed to hold "preliminary contact on October 4 and hold working-level negotiations on October 5", according to the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
"The delegates of the DPRK side are ready to enter into the DPRK-U.S. working-level negotiations", said Choe, referring to the acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
"I hope that improvements in North Korea-US relations will be accelerated through these working-level talks".
The location of the proposed meeting has not yet been revealed, and there has been no immediate public confirmation from the Trump administration.
North Korea has announced that talks on its nuclear program will resume with the USA on Saturday, months after negotiations collapsed over what Pyongyang called unreasonable American demands. With Bolton fired and Trump saying he's open to a "new method" to talks, it seems North Korea now believes Trump may do just that.

Iran has denied any involvement in the attacks, and says any strikes by the US or Saudi Arabia will lead to "all-out war". The day before, Trump during his address to the United Nations emphasized that withdrawing sanctions wasn't an option.

"The strategic decision Kim Jong-un is operating through is that he will do whatever he can to keep a deliverable nuclear weapons capability and to develop and enhance it further", Mr. Bolton said during an appearance at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. It instead lashed out at the USA and South Korea and continued to test short-range ballistic missiles.
The office of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who lobbied hard to set up the first summit between Mr Kim and Mr Trump past year in Singapore, welcomed the announcement and expressed hope that the resumed talks would result in "substantial progress" in denuclearisation and stabilisation of peace. "In fact, I think the contrary is true", Bolton, a hardliner towards North Korea and Iran who was sacked by Trump three weeks ago, said at Washington's Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.
In late September, Kim Myong Gil, a former North Korean ambassador to Vietnam, announced via state-run media that he would lead working-level talks with the United States over issues including denuclearization.
There are doubts about whether Kim would ever voluntarily deal away an arsenal that he may see as his strongest guarantee of survival.
Analysts say Bolton's dismissal from the White House could have helped Pyongyang's decision to come to the table. "This is a government that has essentially violated every worldwide agreement it has ever made".
At the end of June, the two leaders met unexpectedly in the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas, raising the possibility that a third formal summit would be held.
