SEOUL, South Korea — A senior South Korean official says North Korea could bring its own collapse if it keeps pouring scarce national resources into its nuclear program and military.

Presidential security adviser Chun Yung-woo says in an interview with U.S. public broadcaster PBS that North Korean leaders' "obsession" with weapons of mass destruction like nuclear weapons would be "a short-cut to their demise."

PBS has posted part of Chun's interview on its website. His office in Seoul says the full interview will be broadcast Monday in the U.S.

South Korea has used tough language since two attacks last year blamed on North Korea killed dozens of people. But it's still rare for a top Seoul official to publicly speak of on a potential North Korean collapse.
