N.Korea says US has to roll back 'hostile policy' before talks

South Korean special envoy Lee Hae-chan meets China's President Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing

But the North has now denied the claims, notably but not exclusively advanced by South Korean experts, and hit back Friday to accuse its opponents of spreading propaganda.

"The rolling back of the hostile policy toward DPRK is the prerequisite for solving all the problems in the Korean Peninsula", he said.

The re-entry was controlled and the vehicle did not burn up, NBC said, quoting the officials.

Meanwhile, the South Korean Navy revealed a US 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.

Both Trump and new South Korean President Moon Jae-in have expressed a willingness to engage in dialogue with Pyongyang on the condition that the North first show a commitment to denuclearization.

North Korea tested a high-thrust rocket engine as recently as March, hailed as a "great leap forward" by state media at the time.


However, NBC news, citing two US defense officials, reported Friday that the re-entry vehicle had re-entered the atmosphere as planned.

"It is the stance of the DPRK to continuously develop more precise and diversified and nuclear strike means and push ahead preparations for more tests till the USA and its vassal forces make a proper choice with the regions", Kim said. In this regard, the ambassador of the United States, Nikki Haley laid accusations on North Korea for all the reasons mentioned above.

He added, "North Korea see that they are in isolation and they should ensure their security themselves, and that no one will assist them and see threats for themselves".

The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting this week to discuss further measures in response to Pyongyang's launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile days before.

"The thought of placing cyanide in the hands of the North Koreans, considering their record on human rights, political prisoners, and assassinations is not only unsafe but defies common sense", Haley said in a statement. The agency does not grant patents. A United Nations report earlier this year detailing the North's sanctions evasion tactics suggested designating the company for "its involvement in the sales of arms and related materiel". Under U.N. sanctions, states are banned from supplying North Korea with sodium cyanide and Pyongyang has to abandon all chemical and biological weapons and programs. However, he stressed the need for a peaceful resolution by working through the United Nations with countries including China, the North's traditional ally and benefactor.
