US, North Korea and Iran

20 02 2007

And finally…the deal is concluded. It was not a surprise as I always believe that once the US takes a few steps back, the deal can be reached with North Korea. in Beijing North Korea agreed to freeze part of its nuclear weapons programmes in return for fuel aid – fair enough? North Korea asked to close its reactor within 60 days in return for 50,000 metric tons of fuel aid or economic of equal value. When the North completely disables its nuclear operations it will receive another one million tonnes of fuel oil or an equivalent value. Whether or not the North can follow the deal to the end, it for us to wait and see…

However, it seems that the North Korean were not seriously punished for their nuclear test last year. Iran is watching the situation closely and this mightn trigger them to go ahead with their nuclear weapon programmes.
