N. Korea Snubs US TalksN. Korea Snubs US Talks

North Korea said on Wednesday it sees no more need to negotiate with the United States, accusing Washington of plotting to “bring down” its regime, and threatened to strike back using all its military resources.

North Korea’s national defense commission said on Wednesday the US was inching close to “igniting a war of aggression” and that the Obama administration was working to trigger its collapse, Reuters wrote.

The commission, Pyongyang’s supreme leadership body, is headed by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“Since the gangster-like US imperialists are blaring that they will “bring down” the DPRK ... the army and people of the DPRK cannot but officially notify the Obama administration of the USA that the DPRK has neither need nor willingness to sit at the negotiating table with the US any longer,” it said.

It said Pyongyang had decided “to write the last page of ... US history. diversified nuclear striking means and ground, naval, underwater, air and cyber warfare means will be used,” the commission said in the statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

The angry response by North Korea’s defense commission came after its foreign ministry said on Sunday Washington had rejected its invitation for the top US nuclear envoy handling North Korea to visit for talks.
