Nuclear Tensions The Pretext For Clinton North Korea Trip

Posted by | August 4, 2009 10:33 | Filed under: Top Stories

Upon his arrival in North Korea, Bill Clinton met with their chief nuclear negotiator, Kim Kye-gwan.  Speculation is that his mission extends beyond the release of Euna Lee and Laura Ling, and includes discussing the country’s nuclear program.

The video of Clinton’s arrival was provided to the Associated Press by North Korean state television.  Interestingly this story highlights the trip a being about “diffusing nuclear tensions” and then goes on to say, “Clinton is also expected to inquire about the condition of Laura Ling and Euna Lee.”  It sounds as though North Korea wanted a high level visit to discuss its nuclear program, and Ling and Lee are being used as negotiating chips by the North Koreans.
