N. Korea threatens to end talks due to ‘hostile’ US policy

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea says it has no intention of constant talks with the United States until it abandons its “hostile policy” in opposition to the North.

North Korea’s Foreign Ministry made the remark in a press release Sunday, hours after its chief envoy to talks with the U.S. mentioned nuclear negotiations between the international locations in Stockholm on Saturday broke down as a result of the U.S. didn’t discard its “old stance.”

The U.S. mentioned the 2 sides had “good discussions” in Sweden that it intends to construct on in two weeks.

But the North’s Foreign Ministry dismissed the U.S. assertion as groundless.

It mentioned North Korea isn’t prepared to carry “such sickening negotiations” as these in Stockholm till the U.S. takes “a substantial step to make complete and irreversible withdrawal of the hostile policy toward” North Korea.
