NORTH KOREA’s ambassador to the United Nations told world leaders the USA is “terrified by the incredible might” of the hermit state’s nuclear powers.

And they added that North Korea was “a responsible nuclear power, a peace-loving state,” and “will sincerely fulfil non-proliferation obligation”.

North Korea has accelerated the pace of its missile program, launching 40 ballistic missiles and conducting three nuclear tests over the past two years.

The comments from North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations come after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday urged North Korea, for the second time this week, to enter negotiations and give up its nuclear weapons.

Speaking at the United Nations Security Council in a session called for foreign ministers, Tillerson said the United States asks that any talks be preceded by a “sustained cessation of North Korea’s threatening behaviour.”

He added: “North Korea must earn its way back to the table. The pressure campaign must and will continue until denuclearization is achieved.”

But the White House distanced itself from Tillerson’s remarks and said that now is not the time for negotiations.

North Korea has made clear it has little interest in negotiations with Donald Trump and his military chiefs until Kim Jong-Un has developed the ability to hit the US mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono told the Security Council that any lull in missile tests did not mean that North Korea was sitting idly.

He said: “The latest launch was conducted 75 days after North Korea’s provocations in September. Some optimistic views labeled 75 days of silence as a positive signal.

“However, the missile launch in November made it clear that North Korea was continuing to relentlessly develop its nuclear and missile programs even while they were seemingly silent.”
