North Korea says not interested in Iran-like nuclear talks with US

North Korea is not interested in an Iran-like dialogue with the United States to give up its nuclear capabilities, the isolated country’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement said North Korea’s nuclear programme was an “essential deterrence” against US foreign policy towards the reclusive country, which the North views as hostile. “It is not logical to compare our situation with the Iranian nuclear agreement because we are always subjected to provocative US military hostilities, including massive joint military exercises and a grave nuclear threat,” said the statement, which was carried by state media but attributed to a foreign ministry spokesman.
