  North Korea's U.N. envoy says denuclearization off negotiating table with United States North Korea's U.N. envoy says denuclearization off negotiating table with United StatesAmbassador Kim Song's comment appeared to go further than North Korea's earlier warning that discussions related to its nuclear weapons program, the central focus of U.S. engagement with North Korea in the past two years, might have to be taken off the table given Washington's refusal to offer concessions.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has given U.S. President Donald Trump until the end of 2019 to show flexibility. North Korea's U.N. ambassador, Kim Song, declared on Saturday, however, that denuclearization was off the table.

U.S. top nuclear negotiator Stephen Biegun met privately with U.N. Security Council ambassadors on Wednesday ahead of the public meeting.
