N. Korea says it will remain 'threat' to US, slams Pompeo

North Korea on Friday launched a scathing attack on US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, calling him a "diehard toxin" and saying it was "sceptical" whether it can negotiate with him.

Pyongyang also vowed to remain the United States's "biggest 'threat'" and said annual US-South Korea joint military drills had "complicated" nuclear talks between the two countries.

"We are ready for both dialogue and stand-off," North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho said in a statement.

"The US is sadly mistaken if it still thinks of standing in confrontation with the DPRK with sanctions, not dropping its confrontational stand," the statement said.

"We will remain as the biggest 'threat' to the US for long and long and will make it understand for sure what it has to do for the denuclearisation."
