Pre-Hanoi summit U.S. subcritical nuclear test a sign of bad faith: DPRK MFA

Statement also says Washington maintains "evil ambition to conquer the DPRK by force"

North Korea’s foreign ministry on Wednesday condemned a recently-announced February 13 subcritical nuclear test by the U.S., slamming the move as proof of Washington's bad faith intentions at the failed Hanoi summit later that month. 

With the test, the U.S. “showcased its ulterior intention that it seeks a strength-based solution of the issues, though outwardly it advocates for dialogue,” the Policy Research Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Institute for American Studies (IAS) said in a press statement.
