    North Korea agrees to shut down nuke programs

    GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) -- North Korea agreed Sunday to declare and disable all its nuclear programs by the end of the year, the chief U.S. negotiator said -- the first time the communist country has offered a timeline to end its secretive atomic program.

    The North Korean envoy, in separate comments, told reporters his country was willing "to declare and dismantle" its nuclear program, but mentioned no dates.

    Two days of talks between the United States and North Korea in Geneva had been "very good and very substantive," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said.

    The meetings would help improve chances of a successful meeting later this month with Japan, Russia, South Korea and China in six-nation talks aimed at ending the North's nuclear weapons program and improving relations between North Korea and other countries, Hill said.

    "One thing that we agreed on is that the DPRK will provide a full declaration of all of their nuclear programs and will disable their nuclear programs by the end of this year, 2007," Hill told reporters, using the initials for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

    Hill said the declaration will also include uranium enrichment programs, which the United States fears could be used to make nuclear weapons.

    Kim Gye Gwan, the head of the North Korean delegation, told reporters separately, "We made it clear, we showed clear willingness to declare and dismantle all nuclear facilities." He mentioned no dates.

    "We are happy with the way the peace talks went," Kim said.

    Hill said earlier Sunday that improving U.S. relations with North Korea will depend on other progress in the talks, saying it "is a relationship that we will continue to try to build step by step with the understanding that we're not going to have a normalized relationship until we have a denuclearized North Korea."

    Yeah, although I agree that getting tough is the answer to N.K., I highly doubt that they would actually stop their nuke program for a president on his last year in office. Especially when they know that all three of the possible replacements for him will be incredible wimps. Even if they stop for now, they will undoubtedly start right back up as soon as the military wimps on parade get in office.
