GENEVA (Reuters) - U.S. envoy Robert Wood told a U.N. forum on Tuesday that the world was united against North Korea's "nuclear sabre-rattling".

"North Korea is a pariah and it is an outlier. As long as it continues its defiance, its isolation will only deepen," Wood, the U.S. ambassador to the Conference on Disarmament, the main U.N. disarmament forum, said.

"Pyongyang must also note that it will never be recognised as a nuclear weapons state," he said.
