North Korea on Sunday fumed at US reports that the country is seeking economic assistance from the United States in return for denuclearization, Yonhap reported. The ruling Workers’ Party’s official newspaper Rodong Sinmun commented that Fox News TV, CBS and CNN were “as impudent as to make rubbish that if the DPRK meets the requirements of the US, it can get ‘large-scale non-governmental economic aid’.”  “This is nonsense of hack media on the payroll of power,” according to its commentary carried in an English dispatch by the state-run Korean Central News Agency. “US media is still building up public opinion that the DPRK comes to the negotiating table with the US in a hope to get ‘economic aid’,” the report said using the initial of the North’s full name, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “We cannot but make the fact clear. It is the US that asked for DPRK-US talks first,” the North claimed. “As far as the ‘economic aid’ ... is concerned, the DPRK has never expected it.”
