North Korea said on Sunday that there was no way United States would bring alternative plans for their stalled nuclear talks within two weeks after negotiations in Sweden between the two countries broke down over the weekend. The United States and North Korea were holding working-level talks in Sweden but these were broken off on Saturday.

The U.S. State Department said it had accepted Sweden's invitation to return for more discussions with Pyongyang in two weeks. The North Korean foreign ministry said Washington had made no preparations for the talks in Sweden but only sought to serve its own political aims. North Korea said the ball was now in Washington's court, warning again that it would only wait until the end of the year for the United States to change course.
