  More Dispy-Doodle from the Madman of the North

Typical Cheat and Retreat from the NORK's.
Bush hasn't been bad (not great by any stretch) on the North Korean issue (as opposed to China.
These tactics of course completely buffalo'd
Albright, but that was par for the course.).
International news from swissinfo, the Swiss news platform: "North Korea is ready to dismantle its nuclear weapons programmes if it can better its relations with the United States, Japan and South Korea, China's envoy to Seoul was quoted as saying on Friday.

Chinese Ambassador Ning Fukui said in a meeting with a key South Korean lawmaker that building trust between Pyongyang and Washington was essential for advancing six-party talks aimed at ending North Korea's nuclear weapons programmes.

'Ambassador Ning said he thinks North Korea has the intention to dismantle its nuclear programme,' the main opposition Grand National Party said in a statement.

'However, he expressed the opinion that North Korea would want three key things -- improving ties with the United States, Japan and South Korea -- to be resolved in order to dismantle its nuclear programme,' Ning told Park Geun-hye, the leader of the Grand National Party, the statement said.

Chinese embassy officials were not immediately available for comment.

In September, North Korea agreed at six party-talks to scrap its atomic ambitions in exchange for economic aid, security assurances and greater diplomatic recognition.

North Korea almost scuttled the agreement by asking for a civilian nuclear reactor up front before it even considers dismantling its nuclear programmes.

Washington and others said that was not a part of the deal.

Pyongyang frequently says it was compelled to pursue atomic weapons because of what it sees as Washington's hostile position towards it. U.S. officials have frequently stated Washington has no intention to attack the North."
