So you think maybe this is North Korea’s attempt to deflect attention from the embarrassing reports of torture and death camps that emerged these past few days?
North Korea has indicated it is prepared to resume talks soon on its nuclear arms program, Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said on Tuesday.
One round of talks involving North and South Korea (news – web sites), the United States, China, Japan and Russia was held last year in Beijing but ended inconclusively.
Come to think of it, it’s doubtful, given how little news coverage the torture and experimentation reports have gotten. Maybe the regime is just trying to head it off. Or maybe they don’t understand how willing the world is to ignore such atrocities.
