Mohamed ElBaradei for Dialogue

October 24, 2006

Mohamed ElBaradei of the International Atomic Energy Agency has urged for talks, not sanctions, with North Korea and Iran.

Unalarmed by Iran’s testing of new uranium-enrichment technology, the IAEA chief made it clear that he favors dialogue. The statments come after ElBaradei met with Condoleezza Rice, who just completed a tour of Asia (with a stop in Russia) to garner support for implementing Resolution 1718 and perhaps prepare harsher sanctions on North Korea, unless talks resume.

The Secretary of State’s verdict on the situation is still pending. Some sort of announcement should happen this week.
