North Korea has said it will not scrap its nuclear programme until it is given a civilian nuclear reactor, undermining an agreement reached 24 hours earlier.
Pyongyang agreed on Monday to dismantle its nuclear programme in return for aid and security guarantees, following six-nation talks.

The BBC's Charles Scanlon says that the North's new statement looks like a recipe for continued deadlock.

Both Japan and the US have rejected Pyongyang's demand for a reactor.

Japanese Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura said the North's demand was "unacceptable", Kyodo News agency reported.



wow just 24 hours and they are already starting to screw things up

guess they really want that nuclear reactor

this doesnt sound familiar at all, does it? the last time we gave them nuclear technology in exchange for promises not to build nukes, they did it anyway. and theyll do the same thing again with the next administration. when will we learn?

I read an article yesterday or the day before titled, N. Korea Vows To Give Up Nukes, Lying that was pretty amusing and appears to be coming true.


"Winning these commitments from North Korea is part of President Bush's overall effort to restore the Clinton-era atmosphere of trust on the Korean peninsula," said Mr. McClellan. "For our part, we'll continue to prop up Kim Jong-Il's decadent, oppressive dictatorship in exchange for his commitment to remain in power thanks to the legitimacy that this deal gives him."

Under the terms of the draft agreement, North Korea's official name -- the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) -- will change to the more accurate Tyrannical Megalomaniac's Empire of Korea (TMEK), an honest acknowledgment of Kim Jong-Il's dictatorial cult-of-personality rule.

This story reads like a headline from "The Onion" . We will give up our nuclear weapons after you build more nuclear reactors for us.


The only joke bigger than this are those who still believe that you can carry out diplomacy with N. Korea.

They have no money to buy anything and have nothing to sell other than weapons to rogue nations who ignore sanctions anyway, so it doesn't really matter

North Korea isn't really good for anything except to teach other two-bit dictators how to be leaches on the world while maintaining human rights standards that are very similar to the standards we have for lab rats here in the US, except our lab rats are actually fed.

North Korea has actually refused to participate in international trade, though they're more than happy to be bribed or to blackmail the world to get what they need. Sadly, as this latest story shows, the world gives in to their demands.
