North Korea says U.S. has to roll back 'hostile policy' before talks

North Korea says U.S. has to roll back 'hostile policy' before talks

The claim is being made at a time when speculation is rising over the objective of CIA Director Mike Pompeo's recent visit to Seoul, where he may have met with a high-level defector, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Though the U.S. president has said that a "major, major" conflict with the North is possible, he has also said he would be "honored" to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un under unspecified circumstances.

The story is identical to an earlier claim from Pyongyang's state media.

Patrushev cited North Korea's isolation as the rationale behind the Kim Jong -un leader's mission to increase the nukes so as to ensure the country?s safety.

North Korea on Friday blasted allegations suggesting it waged a wide-scale ransomware attack last week crippling computer systems in over 150 countries.

"The most impressive thing that I heard [from Tillerson] was that sanctions and pressure are not by themselves aimed at harassing North Korea, but are designed to create an opportunity for North Korea's development through opening its doors and scrapping its nuclear program", Hong said, Yonhap reported.

It conducted its latest ballistic missile launch, in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, on Sunday which it said was a test of its capability to carry a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead", drawing Security Council condemnation.

North Korea is also known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

It comes as North Korea's deputy United Nations envoy said the USA needs to roll back its "hostile policy" toward Pyongyang before talks could take place between the pair.

Meanwhile, the South Korean Navy revealed a USA nuclear-powered aircraft carrier group was to remain in the vicinity indefinitely, while Seoul's defense ministry warned it was ready to carry out a preemptive strike if it detected a missile threat from North Korea.

The UNSC vowed to take new measures against North Korea, which might include additional sanctions. At the end of April, the USS Carl Vinson nuclear aircraft carrier task group arrived in the waters off the Korean Peninsula for a separate joint naval exercise with South Korea.

The U.S. troop presence in South Korea, a legacy of the Korean War, is primarily to guard against the North Korean threat.

Haley said: "We urge all U.N. agencies to be transparent and apply the utmost scrutiny when dealing with these types of requests from North Korea and other rogue nations".
