More Tests in North Korea?

October 22, 2006

Condoleezza Rice has denied reports that Kim Jong Il has expressed remorse over the first nuclear test and has promised no follow-up.

Ms Rice has said that the US feels that N Korea wants to escalate the crisis.

The statements were made as the Secretary of State arrived in Moscow. Rice clearly does not know what to expect from Russia, an integral player in the region (and a neighbor to North Korea). Thus, she is preparing for every possible scenario — handling the crisis with or without Russian support of the sanctions.

Any statements or announcements that will be made once her visit is complete, will be the key ones to follow to read the situation and see what may be coming next.
