No Korean Commitment

October 24, 2006

Apparently, the Korean leadership never apologized for the nuclear test, nor made commitments to not carry out further ones. This is what the Chinese foreign ministry has stated today.

China has also made it clear, they will not go as far as the US in punishing Pyongyang.

This is not unexpected — while everyone wanted to believe the media reports about Kim Jong Il’s remorse, these were just reports, not more. Today’s announcement, however, is a statement from the Chinese Foreign Ministry. The first one since a Chinese envoy was sent for dialogue with Kim Jong Il.
