Obama not taking seriously North Korean nuclear offer

HANNOVER, Germany (AP) – President Barack Obama says the United States isn’t taking seriously North Korea’s latest statements about being ready to halt its nuclear tests if the U.S. would suspend its annual military exercises with South Korea.

Obama says that if North Korea wants to shows it’s serious, then it would be prepared to enter negotiation to reduce tensions in the region.

North Korea’s foreign minister made the offer in an Associated Press interview on Saturday.

But Obama says such a commitment isn’t shown “based on a press release” and that the North is going to have to do better.

Obama spoke during a news conference in Germany.
