Governor Richardson Reports Positive Meeting With North Koreans

Apologies for just getting this up on the blog, but I've had no internet connection since Thursday and was without power from Thursday night to late Sunday afternoon.

Governor Richardson reported a positive meeting
with the North Korean delegation dispatched to Santa Fe in advance of the 6 party talks.
“My discussion with Minister Kim and Secretary Song was positive and productive and I am cautiously optimistic that there is the chance for good progress when the six-party talks resume on Monday,” said Governor Richardson. “I urged the North Koreans to take some action, such as allowing IAEA inspectors to return and shutting down their reactor, to show they are serious about solving the crisis on the Korean Peninsula.”

“As usual, the Governor has provided wise counsel regarding the steps that can be taken by the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) and the USA for better bi-national relations and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and bringing peace and stability to the region,” said Minister Kim.
Isn't it amazing what a little talking can do? Instead of name-calling and threats, Governor Richardson, Mininster Kim and Secretary Song engaged in respectful and civil discourse. The Bush Administration has much to learn from Governor Richardson.
