"North Korea adheres to the principle of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. That’s our unchanged unambivalent stance," he said.
He stressed though that abandoning nuclear weapons and denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula would only be possible after the relevant parties gave up hostile policy in relation to Pyongyang and threats to its security.
"Once the relevant parties abandon hostile policies and security threats, there will be no need for North Korea to have nuclear weapons, and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will be feasible," Xinhua quotes him as saying.
