BEIJING -- After a weekend visit by a Chinese envoy, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il said Monday his country is willing to resume the six-party talks, CNN reported.
However, he reportedly said the six-party talks would resume only if Washington "would show trustworthy sincerity and move (its stance)," Pyongyang's official news agency reported.
"We will go to the negotiating table anytime if there are mature conditions for the six-party talks thanks to the concerted efforts of the parties concerned in the future," the state news agency KCNA said.
Well that stand sure lasted a long time.............Not. It sure would have been nice to be a fly on the wall to hear what that envoy said. Did he ask them or tell them to return to the talks?
