North Korea to ‘co-operate’ in nuclear talks

North Korea agrees nuclear ‘co-operation’ with US BBC News 14 Dec 09

North Korea says it will continue to co-operate with the US on ending its nuclear programme and agrees that stalled talks need to resume.

The country’s foreign ministry said Pyongyang would work with the US to “narrow remaining differences”.

The announcement comes following a visit to Pyongyang by US President Barack Obama’s special envoy Stephen Bosworth…………….

These discussions – involving the US, China, Russia, Japan and the two Koreas – are aimed at getting rid of the North’s nuclear capabilities in return for aid and security guarantees.

North Korea had said it would never again get involved in the talks. But China managed to persuade officials in Pyongyang to consider returning.
