North Korea says denuclearisation 'gone out of the negotiation table'

North Korea says denuclearisation 'gone out of the negotiation table'

At the United Nations, a statement released by North Korea's UN ambassador, Kim Song, said that denuclearization had "already gone out of the negotiation table".

Asked about North Korea's continued missile tests on Tuesday, Trump said the USA still has the most powerful military in the world and would use it against Kim's regime "if we have to".

North Korea on Saturday said denuclearization talks with the United States were "out of the negotiation table", while slamming European UN Security Council members who had recently denounced its "provocative" ballistic missile launches.

The 30-minute talk was the first conversation between the USA president and the South Korean leader since they met at the UN General Assembly in NY in September.

The reported test came as North Korea is stepping up pressure on the U.S.to make concessions in stalled nuclear talks.

There was no immediate comment from the South Korean military, which usually issues alerts if a missile is seen launching from North Korea. On Friday the USA ambassador to the United Nations said the United States had not yet decided whether to have a U.N. Security Council meeting to discuss North Korean human rights abuses that has angered Pyongyang.

"As these six European Union member states are making much trouble to play the role of pet dog of the United States in recent months, one can not but wonder what do they get in return for currying favour with the United States", Kim, the ambassador, said.

North Korean officials have previously said whether North Korea lifts its moratorium on long-range missile and nuclear tests depends on what actions the U.S. takes.

Both agreed, the Blue House said in a statement, that a dialogue needed to continue in order to achieve denuclearization.
