N. Korea Threatens to Reconsider Washington-Pyongyang Summit

A senior North Korean official warned Wednesday that Pyongyang will reconsider the upcoming summit talks with the U.S. if it comes under continued pressure to "unilaterally" abandon its nuclear program. 

In a statement carried by the North's state media Korean Central News Agency(KCNA), Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan said that the communist regime is not interested in any nuclear talks in which it is coerced and driven into giving up its nuclear arsenal. 

Kim added that when the Trump administration addresses the summit with sincerity it will get a proper corresponding response from North Korea.

The vice minister criticized U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton's calls for a Libya model for the North's denuclearziation and the complete dismantlement of the North's nuclear weapons. 

Denouncing the calls as a reckless move that provokes a dialogue partner, the North said that it is extremely dull to compare the nuclear state of North Korea to Libya which was at its early stage in its nuclear development.

The vice minister stressed that the North has already expressed its willingness to denuclearize itself and clarified multiple times that the U.S. should stop its hostile policy as a precondition for the North's denuclearization.
