NKorea: no reactor - no deal

North Korea again pointed out that the United States must give it a light water reactor before it will abandon its nuclear programs, jeopardizing a deal signed Monday.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said in a statement, The U.S. should not even dream of the issue of North Korea's dismantlement of its nuclear deterrent before providing light water reactors. According to the Xinhua news agency it is the Korea's last word.

The statement came one day after six-party talks concluded in Beijing with an agreement that North Korea would abandon all its nuclear programs in return for oil and energy aid.

Monday's agreement said the issue of nuclear energy for North Korea would be discussed at an appropriate time. U.S. negotiator Christopher Hill had made it clear that a North Korean demand for a reactor before it began dismantling its nuclear programs was a non-starter.

U.S. and Japanese officials, saying the provision of a light water reactor was not what had been agreed Monday, called the demand unacceptable.

Some analysts blamed the United States for not having the details spelled out clearly in the signed agreement. The document did not mention when specific actions would take place, the United Press International reports.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
