North Korea dismisses remarks by Mike Pence as: "stupid"

A senior North Korean official has dismissed remarks by US Vice-President Mike Pence as: "stupid", casting further uncertainty about a planned meeting between the two countries' leaders.
It comes days after Mr Pence warned that North Korea "may end like Libya" - where then-leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed by rebels in 2011, after renouncing nuclear weapons eight years earlier.
The North says, Pyongyang would not "beg" for dialogue, and warned of a "nuclear showdown" if diplomacy failed.
