N. Korea vows never to face US in negotiations

Kim Yo-jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, said on Wednesday that North Korea will "never sit face to face" with the United States at a negotiating table because "the sovereignty of an independent state can never be an agenda item for negotiations."

Kim's remarks came in response to the US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who said at the US Security Council (UNSC) meeting on North Korea that Pyongyang should decide on the "time and topic" of talks. "I deplore the fact that the UNSC, at which the purpose and principle of the UN Charter have to be strictly respected, is being turned into a land of lawlessness where the sovereignty of independent states is wantonly violated," Kim added, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap. The UNSC meeting was held to address North Korea's recent launch of a military reconnaissance satellite.
