North Korea on Tuesday rejected further talks on its nuclear program and blamed the breakdown in negotiations directly on the United States, claiming Washington wants to rule the world. In a speech to the UN General Assembly that was peppered with anti-American rhetoric, Deputy Foreign Minister Choe Su Hon also slammed Japan's push for a permanent seat on the Security Council and criticized the Security Council itself as irresponsible, unrepresentative and unfair.
