Korea denies Syria chemical weapons claim

In order to defend itself from such threats, Han said the North "had access to nuclear weapons" and it won't hesitate to respond to any confrontations from Washington.

Lavrov also met with his South Korean counterpart, Kang Kyung-wha, on the sidelines of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which was running concurrently with the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.

"If the United States finally holds joint military exercises while keeping sanctions on the DPRK, the DPRK will counter the U.S. by its own mode of counteraction and the USA will be made to own all responsibilities for the ensuing consequences", North Korea's official KCNA news agency said in its commentary.

Following the deadliest conflict in the history of mankind, North Korea and South Korea were split by World War II allies the Soviet Union and the U.S.in 1945.
