North Korea Says It Will Boycott Six-Party Nuclear Talks

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korea is lashing out at the U.N.
Security Council for condemning the country's recent rocket launch.
The Foreign Ministry says it "resolutely rejects the unjust
action" by the United Nations, which it says "wantonly"
infringes upon the country's sovereignty and "seriously" hurts
the dignity of its people.
North Korean officials are vowing to restore the nation's
nuclear facilities and boycott international talks on its atomic
weapons program.
The statement was North Korea's first reaction to the Security
Council's unanimous censure of the April 5 launch, which Pyongyang
says sent a satellite into space but the U.S. and others say tested
long-range missile technology.
One North Korea expert at Seoul's Dongguk University says
Pyongyang appears to be using its threats as a negotiating tool and
that, after some time has passed, talks are likely to resume.
