GENEVA, Jan. 21 (Yonhap) -- North Korea declared Tuesday on the global stage that it will no longer adhere to its moratorium on nuclear and missile tests, citing "brutal and inhumane" sanctions led by the United States on its regime.

"We found no reason to be unilaterally bound any longer by the commitment that the other party fails to honour," Ju Yong-chol, a counsellor at North Korea's mission to the United Nations in Geneva, reportedly said during the U.N.-backed Conference on Disarmament.

He accused Washington of applying "the most brutal and inhumane sanctions" against Pyongyang.

He warned that if the U.S. maintains such "hostile policy," there will never be the denuclearization of Korea.
