U.S. says military option not believed to be close for solving North Korea crisis

TOKYO, Feb 1 (Reuters) - The U.S. special envoy on North Korea said on Thursday all options remain on the table for solving the nuclear standoff with the reclusive country but that he did not think the military option was close.
