It’s up to US , warns North Korea over Nuke tensions

North Korea`s foreign minister said Tuesday that  any decision to stage a further nuclear test would depend on the United States.”Whether we conduct additional nuclear tests is entirely up to the United States,” Ri Yong-Ho told reporters on the sidelines of an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting in Laos.

Korea replied after John Kerry warns of serious consequences if Pyongyang pushes ahead with further nuclear and missile tests.

The newly appointed Ri, who was making his overseas debut as the North`s top diplomat, blamed the United States for the failure of the long-dormant six-party talks on Pyongyang`s nuclear programme.

“The denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula went out of the window because of the United States,” he said.”And recently they committed the most grave hostility by insulting our Dear Leader,” Ri said
