South Korea Offers Bargain To North Korea!

The Republic of Korea has offered its northern neighbor the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a “grand bargain” which entails the end of nuclear development on both sides in exchange for security guarantees and economic assistance. President Lee Myung-bak is attempting to find a way to end fears of nuclear development on the peninsula in order to create a way out of an American-North Korean confrontation. He described the offer as not related to a crisis decision, but to “a precious opportunity” for peace.

There is a possibility such an offer can persuade North Korean leaders to use common sense and focus on developing their nation rather than wasting precious resources on developing atomic weapons that never will be used.
