NKorea denies involvement in spread of WMD

Sunday, May 16, 2010

SEOUL, South Korea -- North Korea is denying an Israeli allegation that Pyongyang is spreading weapons of mass destruction and vowing not to tolerate Israel's alleged slander.

The North's Foreign Ministry said Saturday the North "has nothing to do with any spread of WMDs." It also said it would never pardon Israel for "daring slander the dignified [North] by faking up sheer lies."

The comment published by the North's official Korean Central News Agency was the first official response to Israel's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's comment this past week.

Lieberman said Wednesday in Japan that North Korea, Iran and Syria cooperate and are the world's biggest security threat because they build and spread weapons of mass destruction.
