North Korea is willing to resume international nuclear disarmament talks if the US lifts a freeze on disputed North Korean assets in a Macau bank, the North's top nuclear envoy Kim Kye Gwan said on Thursday. North Korea has refused to restart the talks unless the financial restrictions - imposed on a Macau bank and North Korean companies - are lifted, but Washington has maintained that the sanctions are unrelated to the nuclear talks and will stay in place. "I will go to the negotiating table the moment I seize the assets with my hands," the North's nuclear envoy said in a news conference, hours before he was scheduled to leave Tokyo. Kim's comments wrap several days of nuclear talks between the six nations trying to negotiate an end to North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
