TOKYO, October 24. (Itar-Tass). — North Korea's Defense Ministry said that Pyongyang will not unilaterally take action to reduce nuclear weapons as long as a threat of military intervention by other countries remains, Japanese media reported on Thursday.
“Denuclearization of the Korean peninsula not only implies the elimination of nuclear weapons in North Korea, this process also includes joint actions by other countries to lift the threat of a nuclear attack on DPRK. We do not intend to take the necessary measures alone,” the statement of Ministry of Defense says.
In early October, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington was ready to negotiate and conclude a nonaggression pact with North Korea, when it becomes clear that “Pyongyang began the denuclearization”. In response, the National Defense Commission of North Korea announced that only nuclear-weapon revolutionary forces of the DPRK could guarantee peace and security on the Korean peninsula, but not a non-aggression pact.
