N Korea blasts S Korea leader’s nuke comments

North Korea on Tuesday slammed South Korea president Park Geun-Hye for ‘hurting its dignity’ with her call for denuclearisation and said its atomic weapons could never be a bargaining chip.

‘Park Geun-Hye let loose a whole string of provocative remarks seriously hurting the dignity and social system in the DPRK (North Korea) while visiting China,’ read a statement released by the committee for the peaceful reunification of Korea.

It was North Korea’s first official reaction to a high-profile summit between 
its closest ally and South Korea during Park’s four-day trip to China last week. 

In China, Park called for north’s denuclearisation and described Pyongyang’s policy of pushing forward economic construction together with its nuclear build-up as an unattainable goal.

‘We have agreed that under any circumstances, North Korea’s nuclear (weapons) are unacceptable,’ Park said after talks with China president Xi Jinping. The north’s committee accused Park of making ‘so desperate efforts to garner support for South Korea that her shamelessness and disgusting nature reached the height’. 

‘What merits a more serious attention is that Park ...dared take issue again with the DPRK’s new strategic line during her trip,’ it said.
