North Korea reiterates it will not give up nuclear arms

SEOUL - North Korea reiterated on Saturday that it would not give up its nuclear weapons, rejecting a US condition for talks although it said it was willing to discuss disarmament.
North Korea, in a sign of a possible end to weeks of heightened hostility on the Korean peninsula, offered the United States and South Korea a list of conditions on Thursday for talks, including the lifting of UN sanctions.
But the United States said it was awaiting "clear signals" that North Korea would halt its nuclear weapons activities.
