Report: Pyongyang says it will not stop working on its nuclear program until the U.S. changes its policy towards North Korea in the face of the latest UN sanctions. 
 
Bang Kwang-hyok , a spokesman for the North Korean delegation attending the ASEAN Regional Forum(ARF) in Manila, revealed the stance at a press briefing on Monday.

"As long as the United States refuses to stop its hostility and nuclear threats towards the DPRK, the DPRK will never bring the nuclear and ballistic missile program on to the negotiation table. The DPRK will not budge an inch along the path that they have chosen in order to strengthen its nuclear capability."
 
Bang said the cause of the nuclear issue and the deterioration of the situation on the Korean Peninsula lies with the United States.
 
North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho’s also made a statement to the ARF, saying that his country has no intention of using nuclear weapons against any other country except the U.S.
 
The remarks are in line with North Korea’s condemnation of new U.S.-led international sanctions.
 
The UNSC on Saturday unanimously adopted Resolution 2371 in response to the regime’s recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests, slashing the North’s annual export revenue by a third.
 
According to the North’s official Korean Central News Agency, Pyongyang issued a statement denouncing the fresh sanctions as a violent encroachment on its national sovereignty and rejected them outright while also threatening to retaliate against the U.S. “hundreds of thousands of times.”
