The North Korean government has agreed to end all nuclear programs and work with the United Nations to ensure their nation poses no threat of nuclear capability. Chris Hill, US Under Secretary of State, who has been actively engaged in negotiation with North Korea said; “One thing that we agreed on is that the DPRK will provide a full declaration of all their nuclear programs and will disable their nuclear programs by the end of the year.” Kim Gy Kwan, representative of North Korea indicated his nation will receive economic and political compensation for ending its nuclear program. He expected North Korea would no longer be cited as a terrorist nation.
This agreement again proves the importance of quiet, relentless negotiation rather than a rush to war. Perhaps, if Bush had taken the negotiation route, the tragedy of Iraq might never have happened.
