"They need to be serious about denuclearization and we're not seeing that they are serious about denuclearization".

North Korea's history of talks with the South and the United States is rife with unkept promises and broken deals. -South Korea war games that have raised the ire of Pyongyang in the past. "The South Korean president's approval rating has dropped in recent days as well".

North Korea says it seeks a nuclear weapon that can reach the United States mainland to deter a possible American attack.
