North Korea vowed Monday to hold onto its nuclear weapons until the United States removes “nuclear threats” against it, renewing its harsh rhetoric in what appeared to be an attempt to draw Washington’s attention, reported Yonhap News Agency.

“As long as there is no nuclear dismantlement in the South to clear nuclear threats from the United States, dismantlement to remove our nuclear arms won’t be materialized,” a spokesman for the North’s General Chief of Staff said in an interview carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.

The statement was a repeat of North Korea’s claim by its Foreign Ministry in January.
