North Korea's nuclear envoy said Thursday his country won't unilaterally abandon its atomic weapons program after two days of meetings with his US counterpart failed to produce a date on restarting six-nation disarmament talks. Later Thursday, Japan's envoy said the talks could still resume before the year's end.

"The possibility that talks could resume (in December) cannot be denied.
