North Korea is demanding that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo no longer take part in any further talks involving its nuclear weapons program.

Kwon Jong Gun, a senior official in the North's foreign ministry, says Pyongyang wants someone who is “more careful and mature in communicating,” according to a report by the official KCNA news agency.

When asked about the development, a State Department spokesperson said "The United States remains ready to engage North Korea in a constructive negotiation."

On Wednesday, North Korea announced that it had tested a new “tactical guided weapon,” the latest display of Pyongyang's military capabilities.

KCNA said Kim Jong Un supervised and guided the Wednesday test, calling it an operation of “very weighty significance.”

The KCNA report did not elaborate on the type of weapon tested, but the phrase “tactical” suggests it is not a ballistic missile.

Still, the test could be seen as a warning to the United States, amid an impasse in talks over North Korea’s nuclear program.
