N.Korea says won't give up nuclear weapons alone
S.KOREA: North Korea said it was ready to implement an
international agreement made last year but would not unilaterally give
up nuclear weapons, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported.
"North Korea is ready to implement the September 19 agreement but
such a thing as unilaterally giving up nuclear weapons is impossible,"
it quoted North Korean nuclear envoy Kim Kye-gwan as saying after talks
with his South Korean counterpart in Beijing.
Under the deal signed in September last year, North Korea agreed in
principle to scrap its nuclear weapons programme in return for economic
and security incentives.
