N. Korea envoy at UN says denuclearization ‘already off the table’ in talks with US

North Korea’s ambassador to the UN has rejected Washington’s call for “sustained and substantial dialogue” :

“We do not need to have lengthy talks with the US now and denuclearization is already gone out of the [sic] negotiating table,” ambassador Kim Song said in a statement on Saturday.

Song added that the Trump administration’s calls for dialogue are a “time-saving trick” to push the denuclearization issue past next year’s election.

Pyongyang has given the United States an “end-of-year” deadline set by Kim Jong Un to abandon its demand for unilateral denuclearization, lest he will choose a “new approach.”
