Following the Iran nuclear deal, North Korea announced that it has no interest in a deal with the U.S. in regards to its nuclear capabilities because of Washington’s “provocative policies,” reports Fox News.
North Korea’s Foreign Ministry issued the statement following remarks from U.S. Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman that perhaps the deal with Iran “might give North Korea second thoughts.”
But North Korea isn’t open to negotiations, saying Pyongyang “remains unchanged in the mission of its nuclear force as long as the U.S. continues pursuing its hostile policy.”
In fact, North Korea has not responded to the May proposals by the U.S., South Korea, China, Russia, and Japan to start talks regarding Pyongyang’s nuclear program.
For many countries, North Korea’s nuclear capability is quite concerning. Within the last ten years, the country has conducted three separate tests, although the success of which has yet to be fully determined.
