GENEVA (Reuters) – North Korea said on Tuesday that if the United States responds to its efforts on denuclearization with trustworthy measures and practical actions, “bilateral relations will develop wonderfully at a fast pace”.
Han Tae Song, North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, also told the U.N.-sponsored Conference on Disarmament that Pyongyang would continue working to establish a “permanent and durable peace mechanism on the Korean peninsula”.
