South Korea will back end
of sanctions against North
President Kim Dae-jung of South Korea said today that Seoul would
support any move by Washington to
ease or abandon U.S. sanctions
against North Korea but would not make such a request itself.
Despite the announcement, the president said South Korea's policies
toward the North had not changed.
Kim leaves for a nine-day state visit to the United States on
Saturday. North Korea and South Korea's economic crisis are
expected to top his agenda.
ELSEWHERE IN THE REGION:
MORE TESTS? Pakistan's military appears to be preparing to test
fire one of its short-range missiles, a move that could further
undermine efforts to avert an arms race in South Asia, a senior
Clinton administration official said Thursday. The missile has a
range of 250 to
375 miles, and, if it is test launched, would be
armed with a dummy warhead or no warhead.
