BLOOMBERG: North Korea Is Ready to Join Nuclear Talks, U.S. Lawmakers Say
Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- North Korea is ready to rejoin six- nation talks aimed at dismantling its nuclear programs, said a group of U.S. Congress members who visited the capital, Pyongyang. The lawmakers, speaking in the South Korean capital Seoul today, said they met North Korea's second in command Kim Yong Nam. The bipartisan delegation, led by Representative Curt Weldon, a Pennsylvania Republican, visited North Korea Jan. 11 to Jan. 19 as part of visits to nations involved in trying to persuade North Korea to dismantle its nuclear weapons program.
RTWT. I hope the Congressmen are right. And I hope that North Korea is ready to negotiate in earnest, and not merely using negotitations as a ploy, a delaying tactic. AGAIN! Then again: we should never base our national security on a "hope." IOW: regime change is still the only REAL answer.
