North Korea is not considering contact with the United States, Foreign Minister Ri Son-gwon said Wednesday.
"We are not considering even the possibility of any contact with the US, let alone having it, which would get us nowhere, only taking up precious time," Ri said in a statement released by the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency.
DPRK stands for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. (Yonhap)
