(Note: statement likely made before latest threat from North Korea)
A U.S. special envoy warned North Korea Thursday against conducting a possible nuclear test, a day after Pyongyang hinted that it might push ahead with a nuclear test to retaliate against the U.N. Security Council resolution.
"Whether North Korea tests or not, it's up to North Korea. We hope they don't do it, we call on them not to do it. It will be a mistake and a missed opportunity if they were to do it," said Glyn Davies, the U.S. special envoy on North Korea policy, when asked about the possibility of a nuclear test by North Korea.
"This is not a moment to increase tensions on the Korean Peninsula. This is the opportunity (for North Korea) to seize the moment" to engage with the outside world, Davies said.
How long before the US completely surrenders?
Impressive. Way to take a stand.
