North Korea on Saturday lashed out at Japan for comments by officials that they won't accept the communist nation as a nuclear power, and said Tokyo shouldn't take part in revived talks on the North's nuclear program. The North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that "there is no need for Japan to participate in (the talks) as a local delegate because it is no more than a state of the US and it is enough for Tokyo just to be informed of the results of the talks by Washington." Japan is a common target for the North's hostile rhetoric, stemming to Tokyo's imperial occupation of the Korean peninsula in the early 20th century.
