US envoy says North Korea remains on terrorism-sponsor list

A senior US diplomat said Tuesday that North Korea remains on a list of states that sponsor terrorism, dismissing North Korean claims that Washington has decided to remove the designation. "No, they haven't been taken off the terrorism list," US Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill told Japanese reporters as he arrived in Australia's business capital for a meeting of Pacific Rim nations. A State Department press officer separately confirmed the remarks. Hill's comments were the first official denial since North Korea's Foreign Ministry, in a statement carried Monday by the country's official news agency, said that Washington agreed to remove the terror-sponsor designation and lift sanctions in a weekend meeting between Hill and his counterpart in Geneva.
