Quotes

"China has been an important partner in the implementation of sanctions and even as recently as last year they took a number of important steps."
• Bradley Martin, in , writes that Kim Jong-il, in a recorded conversation with pro-DPRK Korean-Japanese officials in 1998, "called Kim Young-sam 'a filthy dirt-bag'. 'One thing I feel sorry for him,' the North Korean leader told his visitors, 'is that he surrounded himself with bad advisers. When Leader Kim Il-sung passed away, Kim Young-sam could not attend the funeral because of his advisers. I hear Kim himself regrets having bad helpers. When Leader Kim Il-sung died, I discussed with Secretary Kim Yong-sun what to do if Kim Young-sam wanted to attend the funeral, and made a detailed plan to receive him. But he did not come, and we were very upset with him. If he had any wisdom, he would have come to the funeral. If he had come, he might have taken over North Korea and become president of a united Korea. What an idiot'."
"We agreed that there is more that we can dodo inin order to bring North Korea into compliance with its international obligations."
...inspection tour of the construction site of a new terminal of its international airport, the North's Korea Central News Agency said in a dispatch. "Requirements of technical regulations and construction methods should be rigorously met in construction."
