Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi says he will seek to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program but that his previous mediation attempt produced no clear outcome, South Korea's prime minister's office said Thursday. Gadaffi said he "is still interested in mediating the dispute over North Korea's nuclear program" during a meeting Wednesday with South Korean Prime Minister Han Myung-sook in Tripoli, said Han's office. Han appealed to Gadaffi to help persuade North Korea to follow in the footsteps of the oil-rich North African country in renouncing its nuclear program and moving toward economic reforms and openness.
