N. Korean nuclear revelations confirm deceit, envoys say

North Korea’s latest revelations about its uranium-enrichment program confirm the country’s long-term deceit, U.S. and South Korean diplomats said Monday, according to CNN. The country’s nuclear program was never an “if”; it was al­ways a “when,” North Korean watchers underscored. Calling the uranium-enrichment program “provocative,” Stephen Bosworth, the U.S. special envoy on North Korean denuclearization, said Monday, “That being said, this is not a crisis. We’re not surprised by this. We have been watching and analyzing [North Korea’s] aspirations to produce enriched uranium for sometime.” Bosworth, speaking following a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan, will also be meeting his Chinese and Japanese counterparts on a tour of the region.
