North Korea on Tuesday said it was up to the United States to chose what “Christmas gift” it wanted as the deadline to resume the stalled denuclearisation talks was drawing closer amid Washington’s continued “dialogue rhetoric”.

“What is left to be done now is the US' option and it is entirely up to the US what Christmas gift it will select to get," the North Korean foreign ministry said in a statement published by state news agency KCNA.
