Seoul: North Korea today slammed South Korean President Park Geun-Hye for “hurting its dignity” with her call for denuclearisation and said its atomic weapons could never be a bargaining chip.

“Park Geun-Hye let loose a whole string of provocative remarks seriously hurting the dignity and social system in the DPRK (North Korea) while visiting China,” the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement through state media.

It was North Korea’s first official reaction to a high-profile summit between its closest ally and South Korea during Park’s four-day trip to China last week.

In China, Park called for the North’s denuclearisation and described Pyongyang’s policy of pushing forward economic construction together with its nuclear build-up as an unattainable goal.

“We have agreed that under any circumstances, North Korea’s nuclear (weapons) are unacceptable,” Park said after talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
