US efforts to get rid of nukes a 'wild dream', says North Korea

North Korea's deputy UN ambassador said Friday that US efforts to get rid of his country's nuclear weapons through military threats and sanctions are "a wild dream."

Kim In Ryong told The Associated Press that North Korea's nuclear weapons are never part of "political bargains and economic deals."

"In a nutshell, DPRK have already declared not to attend any type of talks which would discuss its nuclear abandonment, nuclear disbandment," he said, using the acronym for the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Kim reiterated North Korea's longstanding contention that its nuclear program "is the product of the United States hostile policy towards DPRK."

"That is why every solution will be possible when the United States hostile policy is withdrawn in advance," he said.
