No one can possibly care...

Direct from the blatantly communist CBC:
Agreement reached at North Korea nuclear talks, U.S. envoy says
Six countries reached a tentative agreement Tuesday on initial steps toward North Korea's nuclear disarmament, which could usher in the first concrete progress after more than three years of talks.

I guess 1994-2003 is a total blackout...
The U.S. envoy to the talks, Christopher Hill, emerged in the early morning hours of Tuesday looking weary after a marathon 16-hour negotiating session and announced that a tentative deal had been struck at the latest round of six-party talks on the North's nuclear program. The draft agreement contained commitments on disarmament and energy assistance along with "initial actions" to be taken by certain deadlines, Hill said. Working groups will be set up, hopefully in a month, laying out a framework for dealing with regional tensions, the assistant secretary of state added.
Hmmmm. I can't remember a deal agreed with the framework of this magnitude...
He declined to give further details of the draft.

For obvious reasons...
The agreement could herald the first step toward disarmament since the spectacularly unsuccessful talks began in 2003. The process reached its lowest point in October when North Korea conducted its first nuclear test explosion, alarming the world and triggering useless UN sanctions.

Behold the most useless example of "news" reporting in history:
In the last few days, the talks had appeared to be on the verge of foundering, and envoys made clear that their frustration was increasing and their patience growing thin. The current round was to conclude on Monday but as they progressed toward a deal, negotiators extended it late into the night and then into the early hours of Tuesday.

Eh, why waste precious leftist press talking about the complete failure of remarkably similar diplomacy?

Atomic relationship...

Iranian President Greeted
Pyongyang, February 11, 2007 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly, Sunday sent a message of greetings to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the occasion of the 28th anniversary of the victory in the Islamic revolution of Iran. How nice...The message expressed the conviction that the relations of friendship and cooperation that have favorably developed between the two countries since the victory of the Islamic revolution would expand in "various fields" (wink)(wink) and wished the president greater success in his responsible work to defend the sovereignty of the country and achieve national prosperity, by selling oil to America while killing Americans.
