BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany urged North Korea on Wednesday to halt its program of missile tests and accept the United States' offer of talks on its nuclear plans, hours after U.S. President Donald Trump warned that the Pyongyang "rogue regime" was in "grave danger".

A spokeswoman for Germany's foreign ministry told a regular news conference that U.S. foreign policy under Trump had become "unpredictable", including in areas like trade policy. U.S. rhetoric toward Pyongyang has undergone sharp shifts in recent days.
