SEOUL -- North Korea is pulling out of the global nuclear arms control treaty. That's according to North Korean news media.

North Korea's Central Radio Station broadcast a government statement saying that the communist state was pulling out the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. The report was carried by South Korea's cable news network YTN.

North Korea says its withdrawal from the treaty will free it from safeguard obligations to the U-N International Atomic Energy Agency.

The announcement came as the United States awaits a reply from Pyongyang about its decision to open dialogue to seek a peaceful resolution of the country's nuclear weapons development.
