GENEVA - US envoy Robert Wood told a UN forum on Tuesday that the world was united against North Korea's "nuclear saber-rattling."

"North Korea is a pariah and it is an outlier. As long as it continues its defiance, its isolation will only deepen," Wood, the US ambassador to the Conference on Disarmament, the main UN disarmament forum, said.

"Pyongyang must also note that it will never be recognized as a nuclear weapons state," he said.
