SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea offered rare praise to President Bush on Friday, saying the U.S. leader addressing the North's leader as "Mr.
Kim Jong-il" improved the tone for talks on Pyongyang's nuclear programs.
A North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman said Bush calling Kim "mister" was a way "of politely addressing our headquarters of revolution," the
official KCNA news agency reported.
The praise for Bush comes a day after the North labeled Vice President Dick Cheney a "bloodthirsty beast" after he had said Kim Jong-il was
irresponsible and runs a police state.
"If Bush's remarks put an end to the scramble between the hawkish group and the moderate group in the U.S., which has thrown the Korean policy into
a state of confusion, it would help create an atmosphere of the six-party talks," the spokesman said.
"We will closely follow if his remarks would not change day and night, as this happened in the past," the spokesman said.
