N. Korea warns of war with talks offer

A top North Korean envoy said Friday that US hostility can "lead to war any time" but he reaffirmed an offer for talks with the United States that he said could include nuclear weapons.

The isolated state's UN ambassador Sin Son-Ho told a rare press conference that the United States had driven up tensions through its nuclear "threat". But he added that North Korea is ready for "wide-ranging" talks with the US administration.
