N Korea Pledges To End Nuke Program – Again

From those lovers of nuclear proliferation at Reuters:

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill addresses a media briefing outside the U.S. Mission after bilateral talks with North Korea in Geneva September 2, 2007.

N.Korea to disable nuclear program end ’07: U.S.

By Laura MacInnis

GENEVA (Reuters) – U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Chris Hill said on Sunday that North Korea “will provide a full declaration of all their nuclear programs and will disable their nuclear programs by the end of this year, 2007.”

The details will be discussed during the six party talks scheduled for later this month in China, Hill said at the end of a second day of discussions in Geneva with North Korea’s top nuclear negotiator Kim Kye-gwan…

The six-way negotiations have moved slowly since September 2005, when North Korea agreed in principle to end its nuclear program in return for economic and diplomatic benefits.

After the Geneva meetings with the U.S. delegation, North Korean negotiators will hold bilateral talks with Japan aimed at overcoming frictions.

A six-party plenary session, involving North and South Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the United States, is then expected to be held in mid-September in Beijing.

Of course this is good news.

But how many times is North Korea going to promise to shut down their nuclear program before they actually do it?
