The North’s move on Wednesday came as the United States met Chinese and South Korean officials for talks on how to calm the Korean peninsula and persuade the North to stop its nuclear work.
Seoul, which wants an apology after North Korea’s deadly shelling of a South Korean island off disputed waters in November, said Pyongyang’s call for talks was an empty gesture.
Although both Koreas have called for dialogue to solve the crisis, the South, like Washington, is loath to be seen rewarding the North’s actions with the talks and concessions it desires.
TALKS OR TENSIONS?
Will they ever agree on terms? Will there ever be peace in the Middle East? I suppose that answers my question. I am feeling nostalgic for “MASH” reruns.
