North Korea to quit disarmament talks


au.news.yahoo.com

North Korea says it's quitting six-nation disarmament talks and will restart its nuclear weapons program to protest against a UN statement condemning its rocket launch earlier this month.

The communist state said it "sternly rejects" the UN Security Council's action and would strengthen its nuclear deterrent in response.

"There is no need for the six-party (nuclear disarmament) talks any more,"
"We will never again take part in such talks and will not be bound by any agreement reached at the talks."

The North "will strengthen its nuclear deterrent for its defence by all means," it said.

"We will take steps to restore disabled nuclear facilities... and reprocess used fuel rods that came from experimental nuclear reactors."

it doesn't surprise me at all. what would surpise me is if that rocket they test fired had only a half a tank of gas.

The U.N. has been organising these six-party talks with NK regarding the recent missile launch because Japan wants a tough stance to be taken against the launch. They are in the kill zone.
The UN had to go to far and print a smear statement about the whole event, didn't they.
China and Russia pushed for a gentle approach to the situation and as they expected the UN corked it up.

Now NK has justification to restart their nuclear program and not just as a power source. They want nukes......

Well North Korea was never bound by ANY Security Council Resolution/6 Party Talks stipulation as it never recognised them in the first place.
Hence International Law never applied.

And that was before their "oh-so dangerous" missile test which ended faster than a rabbit's orgasm too.

The UN can condemn this and whine about that as it has done in it's long and colourful history; ironically when they disapproved the use of force in Iraq against America's wishes, but it's just a token, face-saving stunt.

They have no jurisdiction here.

These 6 party negotiations have been going on a lot longer than most think way before they popped their bottle rocket.

2005

Negotiators are reported to have had heated exchanges on the sixth day of six-party talks in Beijing on North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.




North Korea: Six-Party Talks Continue

Amidst concern about North Korea's nuclear weapons program the six-party talks, stalled since June 2004, resumed on Tuesday in Beijing, China. Diplomats from the U.S., China, Japan, Russia and South Korea are meeting with representatives from North Korea to discuss eliminating nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula. The U.S., South Korea and their allies have offered to provide energy and possible economic assistance if North Korea agrees to halt its nuclear weapons program.


2003


Since August 2003, members of the Six-Party Talks have convened in Beijing for several rounds of negotiations aimed at curbing North Korea’s nuclear program. The summits resulted in a September 2005 agreement in which Pyongyang agreed to abandon its quest to become a nuclear power. Yet North Korea joined the nuclear club when it conducted an underground test in October 2006. And diplomatic standoffs among individual Six-Party member states—particularly between the United States and North Korea—constantly threaten to derail the Six-Party process.


2002

In an announcement that shocked the world, Washington said on 16 October 2002 that North Korea had admitted to secretly developing uranium enrichment technology for nuclear weapons, in violation of the 1994 agreement with the US.



Six-Party Talks


Six-Party Talks

The Six-Party Talks concerning the DPRK’s nuclear program involve the United States, North Korea, China, Japan, Russia and, South Korea. However, the primary players are the US and North Korea. The US has requested the involvement of the other four nations to deny North Korea of its desire to participate in bilateral negotiations with the US. The US is unwilling to participate in bilateral negotiations, citing North Korea’s breach of the 1994 Framework Agreement.

It sounds to me like Kim Jong didn't get the bribe that he was looking for after his last stunt. It looks like he will only get paid off if he makes nuclear threats.

Sounds to me that Kim Jong Il has an incredibly tiny penis, and has trouble satisfying his wife.

Honestly, what the hell do NK think they are going to achieve by pissing off the world? If Kim thinks he is some kind of military genius on the same level as Hannibal and is capable of mounting some kind of campaign to overthrow the rest of the world via his 26million population country, then he's quite delusional.

The same thing that they achieved the last time that they made nuclear threats. The world will pay them to stop their program. This is what happens when he makes threats. He knows that it is cheaper for the rest of the world to pay him off than it would be to actually impose some sort of military action against him.

This is probably the most profitable enterprise in their impoverished nation.
