We will not accept a nuclear North Korea: Rice

US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, is in Beijing to discuss the enforcement of sanctions against North Korea. The October 9 nuclear test has sparked UN sanctions. CNBC-TV18 has the details.


Rice says North Korea can return to the six-party talks, that include its neighbours, at any time, without condition.


Condoleezza Rice, US Secretary of State says, “We will not accept a nuclear North Korea. And I think our job and that of all the countries is to show the North Koreans that they are not going to achieve what they want through a nuclear program.”


Rice further says, “If they are looking for respect, they've got isolation and a Chapter 7 resolution. If they are looking for means to the international financial system, they've been cut-off from it. They are not going to achieve anything through this nuclear program.”
