North Korea accused the United States on Monday of creating obstacles in nuclear disarmament talks by making what the North said were false allegations of illegal activities by the communist regime such as counterfeiting and drug trafficking. "The basic stumbling block to resumption of the six-party talks and resolution of the nuclear issue is the United States' hostile policy toward North Korea," the North's communist party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, said in a commentary carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. "Every time there are signs of progress at the six-party talks, the US has created obstacles ... with fabricated problems of human rights, currency counterfeiting and drug trafficking," the newspaper said. "It is clear that while the US talks about resuming six-party talks on the surface, in reality, it has no interest" in resolving the nuclear issue, it said.
