The more North Korea talks the more reasonable they sound.
"He said his country would have to hold onto nuclear weapons unless "all the countries with troops on the Korean peninsula" reach a permanent peace."
OK so they would need a peace treaty with South Korea, USA. I am not sure if they are at war with Japan, but a peace treaty with them probably would not hurt things any.
Which America wants North Korea to hand over their nukes, before we will offer them peace.
Of course both countries want the same thing, it is just the order that we disagree on. That is where the high level negotiations come into play. This article was amazingly positive, I will have to see a few more of these over the next few months before I decide if North Korea has a chance.
