Kim Il Sung, in 1994, promised no nuclear weapons for N. Korea

Remarks by struggling regime’s leader appeared aimed at forging ties with U.S.

At a private luncheon in April 1994, North Korean founding leader Kim Il Sung told a gathering of diplomats and journalists that his country would “never have nuclear weapons.”

North Korea, he said had “neither the need to make nuclear weapons nor the will and ability to do so.”
