USA*Engage Statement on North Korea

Thursday, 26 June 2008

"We are pleased to see progress by North Korea in disclosing its nuclear facilities and the rapid response by the Bush Administration.  It is important to remember that this deal is the result of sustained, direct, multilateral diplomacy by the United States with North Korea and other concerned parties. Dialogue is not a magic bullet, but today's actions by Pyongyang and Washington demonstrate that negotiations and patience can bear fruit."
