The White House says the United States gives serious consideration to North Korea’s nuclear threats and will continue to do so.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs made the remark in a press briefing Monday, saying that the U.S. went to the U.N. to get a stronger sanctions regime on Pyongyang’s ability to move anything out of the country that could do others harm.

Gibbs, statement comes amid reports that Pyongyang has built a new uranium enrichment facility at its main nuclear site in Yongbyon.

Asked if the White House believes that the North’s nuclear threat is deepening while efforts are being made to resume the six-way nuclear talks, Gibbs said Washington believes the six-party process can play an important role if and when the North utilizes that process to move toward denuclearization. He added that the U.S. does not wish to talk simply for the sake of talking.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon was cautious on responding to South Korean Defense Minister Kim Tae-young’s remarks that Seoul would seek the redeployment of U.S. tactical nuclear weapons in the country amid the lingering threat posed by Pyongyang’s nuclear program. The Pentagon said no decisions have been made on the matter.
