North Korea nuclear talks resume

BEIJING – North Korea defiantly proclaimed itself a nuclear power and called anew on the United States to soften its stance toward the regime, as the two countries met with regional powers Monday at the first full arms talks since Pyongyang’s nuclear test.The talks – also including China, Japan, Russia and South Korea – met after the North ended a 13-month boycott over U.S. financial restrictions. But prospects for progress are uncertain, and North Korea stuck to its previously stated demands as all six countries opened the talks at a Chinese state guesthouse in Beijing.
