N.Korea says US must recognise it as 'nuclear weapons state': KCNA

AFP , Sunday 11 Sep 2016

North Korea demanded Sunday that the United States recognise it as a "legitimate nuclear weapons state" following its fifth and largest atomic test.

"(President Barack) Obama is trying hard to deny the DPRK's (North Korea's) strategic position as a legitimate nuclear weapons state but it is as foolish an act as trying to eclipse the sun with a palm," said a foreign ministry spokesman quoted by the official KNCA news agency.
