North Korea said on Monday that it was not interested in holding any more "fruitless" summits with the United States, whom it urged to abandon its hostile policy in order for bilateral talks to advance.

"We no longer take any interest in such fruitless summits," Kim Kye-gwan, former vice foreign minister of North Korea and a key figure in the country's diplomacy and nuclear program, said in a statement.EFE-EPA
