SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea says it must bolster its nuclear capability to cope with "hostile" US policy.

The DPRK Foreign Ministry said in a statement Monday that "continuing hostile US policy and its military threat" have raised the need for North Korea to bolster its "nuclear deterrent" in a new, improved manner.

The statement was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

On Saturday, top world leaders at a G-8 meeting near Toronto criticized North Korea over the March 26 sinking of a South Korean warship, as well as its nuclear program.
