Bluff. Guy with his hand in his jacket pocket saying “don’t move, I have a gun.” You’re the AC expert, I thought this behavior was pretty typical of N. Korea’s bad guy-good guy schizoid behavior to keep the US negotiators off-balance. Bluff and see what US will give us to not do anything crazy.

from the statement, as published (translated?) by the BBC (the NYT quotes the same language):
“We had already taken the resolute action of pulling out of the NPT and have manufactured nukes for self-defence to cope with the Bush administration’s evermore undisguised policy to isolate and stifle the DPRK.”
“Nukes?” What are they, Greenpeace?
