North Korean conditions for nuclear talks

North Korea has announced conditions it says would lead to negotiations with America and the subsequent denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

Just a week after it threatened ‘all out war’ with its southern neighbour, the regime in North Korea said that talks about de-nuclearisation could begin if the United States first removed its nuclear weapons from the region.

Listing their conditions, the statement from the country’s National Defence Commission said: “First, [the Americans and South Koreans] should immediately stop all their provocative acts against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and apologise for all of them.”

“Second, they should give formal assurances before the world that they would not stage again such nuclear war drills to threaten or blackmail the DPRK.

“Third, they should make a decision to withdraw all nuclear war means from South Korea and its vicinity and give up their attempt to reintroduce them as their immediate duty.

“If the US and the southern enemies genuinely want dialogue and negotiation, they should take these steps,” the statement added.

  1. This list of conditions, indicates that North Korea still has more tricks up its sleave, and are not yet ready to move to the negotiationtable. In the past we have seen how NK, in rough times for the country, creates situations like they have this year, all though not as bad as what we see to day. Their goal has allways been to bring US to the table in order to bring in food and oil to the starving country.
