US denuclearisation talks ‘out of the negotiation table’, says North Korea

North Korea on Saturday said denuclearisation 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 statement from North Korea’s ambassador to the UN Kim Song came after Belgium, Estonia, France, Germany, Poland and the UK on Wednesday condemned North Korea’s “continued testing of ballistic missiles,” and called for strict enforcement of sanctions against Pyongyang.
Song said North Korea does “not need to have lengthy talks with the US now and the denuclearisation is already gone out of the negotiation table.” He also called the European statement “another serious provocation,” saying North Korea is exercising “righteous measures of strengthening national defence capabilities.”
“As these six EU member states are making much trouble to play the role of pet dog of the US in recent months, one cannot but wonder what do they get in return for currying favour with” Washington,” the statement continued.
