After pulling out of a set fourth meeting back in September, North Korea now appears ready to continue at a multilateral negotiating table. Previously the country had desired bilateral talks with the US, and Washington would have nothing to do with it, insisting that talks continue with the six countries involved including Russia, China, Japan and South Korea. In a statement Saturday, the North Korean Foreign Ministry forged new hopes for resolving difficult nuclear arms issues by no longer insisting on bilateral talks. They said progress could be made if the US would opt to co-exist with the communist state and drop offending hostile policies. North Korea was projected to be calculating a Kerry victory on November 2, and had hopes of bilateral talks with the newly elect US President.

SEOUL, Nov 15 (Reuters) - North Korea, pragmatic if not always predictable, is softening its tone and edging back to six-party talks about its nuclear ambitions now U.S. President George W. Bush has won another four years in power, analysts say.

The aim, they say, appears to be to signal to Washington it will talk sooner rather than later and so Bush has no need to toughen his policy after a review now under way.

The North Korean Foreign Ministry said on Saturday it would be "quite possible" to resolve the nuclear crisis if the United States dropped its hostile policy and opted to co-exist with the communist state. It said it was not insisting on bilateral talks.

While the DPRK may not be too happy about it, this is good news that at least they are willing to go back to the table and deal. Maybe there still is a way to convice these people that the nuclear road is not a path beneficial to go down, and is really unnecessary.

Its good to see N Korea is willing to have multilateral talks. Since things that are being talked about effect more then just the US and N Korea.

Interesting that they might have been stalling multilateral talks in hope of a Kerry win which might have lead to bilateral talks and perhaps some more money like Clinoton gave them .

Dont get excited people. I doubt anything will come of this. It never does. They just keep stalling so they can make more nukes.
