North Korea Will Not Give Up Nuclear Development, Top Official Tells China

Jun 01 , 2016

North Korea has no plans to abandon its nuclear development programme, a top official from Pyongyang has told China, official media said on Wednesday.

Ri Su-yong, a vice-chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, conveyed that message during a meeting with a senior Chinese official in Beijing on Tuesday, according to North Korea’s state-run media.

While briefing Song Tao, head of the International Department of the Communist Party of China, on the results of last month’s rare party congress, Ri said North Korea’s guiding principle has been “simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force”, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
