hill led washington's delegation at six party talks on north korea he told us there are other issues to be decided head of the meeting. i would not focus too much on the venue i would focus on the fact that this is the first time you have a u.s. president meeting a north korean leader and the question is do they really know what they're going to talk about much less do they know what they're going to agree on normally in a high stakes summit like this you have a pretty clear understanding before the summit begins as to what the outcome is so far if there is such an understanding we're not privy to it the first thing i have a need to do is understand whether the north koreans are ready to give up their nuclear program there are some hints that john hunt us prepared to discuss giving up that if you have right now but that is not very specific the efforts that we had during the bush administration were to try to work on

12:08 pm
the border and thirty minutes ahead in time a week ago state media says he felt it was painful to see two clocks on the wall of the summit venue indicating pyongyang and seoul times so he decided to realign the time zones as the first practical step for national reconciliation and unity. approve the koreas are to unify in the future the standard time should unify first is what you need this is just the beginning step by step maybe not in our generation but in the next year we will have unification south korea welcome to the move saying it represents a decision to remove the obstacles in the path to enter korean and the u.s. north korean exchanges and cooperation that are to come. well such reconciliation steps have given hope for peace but there's still plenty of tension especially near the border scuffles broke out with police on the south korean side when a north korean defector tried to send messages over the border has fallen to angry
