Yeah right, we've heard this one before.
North Korea agreed Monday to dismantle nuclear weapons and its atomic facilities in exchange for energy aid, economic cooperation and security assurances, a breakthrough that marked a first step toward disarmament after two years of six-nation talks.
The chief U.S. envoy praised the development as a "win-win situation" and "good agreement for all of us."
President Bush called it a positive step, but he expressed some skepticism about whether North Korea will live up to its promises.
"They have said - in principle - that they will abandon their weapons programs," Bush said. "And what we have said is, `Great. That's a wonderful step forward.' But now we've got to verify whether that happens."
"The question is, over time will all parties adhere to the agreement," Bush said.
At least President Bush didn't say it's a "win-win situation" and "good agreement for all of us." like that fucking idiot above.
The head of the U.N. nuclear nonproliferation agency welcomed North Korea's decision to allow inspections, saying he hoped his experts could take the country at its word as soon as possible.
Take the country of North Korea at it's word? WTF?!
The talks, which began in August 2003, include China, Japan, Russia, the United States and the two Koreas.
What have they been doing all this time in North Korea? I'm guessing they've been hiding their stuff so that when they agree to let people back in they can't find it. The North Koreans have also demanded a light water reactor as part of the ransom demands. In February North Korea announced it had nuclear weapons
