North Korea denounces Obama's policy as "HOSTILE".

Updated at: 1551 PST, Sunday, May 17, 2009

SEOUL: North Korea on Sunday accused US President Barack Obama of following the same "hostile" path as his predecessor toward the communist state, amid continuing tensions between the two sides.

US-North Korean relations have remained strained over Pyongyang's decision to boycott nuclear disarmament talks, its launch of a long-range rocket in April and its detention of two American journalists.

"The US remains unchanged in its wild ambition to stifle the DPRK (North Korea) by force of arms behind the scene of 'dialogue,'" Minju Joson, a North Korean government-published newspaper, said in a commentary.

"The present US administration is following the same hostile policy toward the DPRK as enforced by the former administration, while touting 'a change' and 'diplomacy for multilateral cooperation.'"

It reiterated Pyongyang would not return to dialogue unless the "hostile" US policy changes.
