North Korea's nuclear envoy said Thursday that the country won't unilaterally abandon its atomic weapons program, but added that Pyongyang remains committed to an earlier agreement on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, a news report said. "North Korea is ready to implement the Sept. 19 pledge, but there cannot be a situation where it unilaterally gives up the nuclear" program, Kim Kye Gwan said in Beijing after a meeting with his South Korean counterpart, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported. The Sept. 19 pledge refers to the only agreement made last year during six-nation talks on the North's nuclear ambitions, where it agreed to abandon its atomic program in exchange for security guarantees and aid.
