U.S., North Korea clash at UN forum over nuclear weapons* North Korea has choice between belligerence and prosperity, says U.S. GENEVA, Aug 22 (Reuters) – North Korea and the United States clashed at a U.N. forum on Tuesday over their military intentions towards one another, with Pyongyang’s envoy declaring it would “never” put its nuclear deterrent on the negotiating table. Japan, well within reach of North Korea’s missiles, said the world must maintain pressure on the reclusive country to rein in its nuclear and missile programmes and now was not the time for a resumption of multi-party talks.
