SEOUL-- North Korea can expect a range of benefits if it drops its nuclear arms programs, a U.S. official knowledgeable about talks with the Communist regime said Thursday, as he called for the North to return to nuclear negotiations.
.
"We are talking permanent, thorough, transparent denuclearization, that is subject to verification," the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said at a meeting with journalists. He ruled out offering any incentives to bring Pyongyang back to the six-party talks, however.
.
He added that if Pyongyang denuclearizes, it could expect "a rich basket" of "corresponding measures," including energy aid and assistance in joining international financial institutions. The official also said that North Korea would be offered multilateral security assurances and could be removed "very quickly" from the U.S. list of states that sponsor terrorism.

There are six nations who were in talks, now stalled. These talks were intended to try to get North Korea to abandon any nuclear program. Prior to the US elections, talks were suspended. In an effort to jump-start them, the US is hinting at huge incentives.
I realize that is is an important issue and any program that can help that nation overcome it's problems will be welcomed especially by it's citizens. However, we have many programs and people who need the money in this country. If we sink deeper in debt it ought to be at home, not abroad.
