I know I sound childish, but I'm so surprised. WHATS GOING ON! Age of Aquarius? </biased propoganda>North Korea called for an end to hostile relations with the US in a new year message today and said it was committed to making the Korean peninsula nuclear-free through negotiations.
North Korea has long demanded an end to Washington's hostility and said it developed nuclear weapons to deter a US attack. Washington has repeatedly said it has no intention of invading the country.
The new year statement brightened prospects of North Korea rejoining stalled international talks on ending its nuclear weapons programmes in exchange for aid and other concessions.
I'm delighted. We all should be. Something 'appears' to be happening. I know there has been many false alarms, but this is truly promising news.
