North Korea not ready to ‘humiliating’ dialogue with US

PYONGYANG: North Korea said on Tuesday it would not agree to a “humiliating” dialogue with the United States.

“We do not oppose dialogue, but cannot sit face-to-face at the humiliating dialogue table with the other party who is wielding a nuclear stick,” a foreign ministry spokesman said.

“As long as the US sticks to its hostile policy and nuclear blackmailing” against North Korea, sincere dialogue can be held only after Pyongyang “prepares its nuclear deterrent fully to thwart a US threat of nuclear war,” he added.

Earlier, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that Washington was ready to talk to North Korea but that Pyongyang had to take “meaningful steps” to honor its international commitments.
