China Offers Revised Disarmament Proposal – Alexa Olesen

From AP, via the Guardian:

China proposed Friday that North Korea retain the right to a peaceful nuclear program after abandoning its weapons, but Pyongyang rejected the idea.

“We will never give up our nuclear” program before the U.S. nuclear threat is removed from the Korean peninsula, North Korean spokesman Hyun Hak Bong told reporters, referring to Pyongyang’s claims that it needs nuclear arms to defend itself.
