North Korea wants U-S to drop `hostile' policy
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

SEOUL, South Korea North Korea says talks on its nuclear activities can happen "right now" if the U-S drops its "hostile" policy.

A statement today from a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman says the nation doesn't care who wins the U-S presidential election. The spokesman says the North's only concern is U-S policy toward Pyongyang. North Korea accuses the Bush administration of trying to win votes by blaming them for a lack of progress in the talks.

Three rounds of six-party talks have been held in Beijing with little success. A fourth set in September didn't happen because North Korea refused to attend. Participants include the two Koreas, the U-S, Russia, China and Japan.

President Bush says the multilateral approach is the only way to deal with North Korea. Democratic challenger John Kerry says he would open bilateral talks.
