HANOI, Vietnam — A North Korean spokesman says the US should halt sanctions and military exercises with South Korea if it wants a nuclear-free peninsula.

"If the US is really interested in the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, it should halt the military exercises and sanctions that destroy the mood for dialogue," North Korean spokesman Ri Tong Il told reporters in Hanoi on Thursday.
