S. Korean minister: US failure to take North off terror list could risk accord
South Korea's foreign minister said that a failure by the United States to take North Korea off a list of state sponsors of terrorism could give the North a justification for walking away from six-nation nuclear disarmament talks. Removal from the US terror list is a key North Korean demand, and, in an effort to reach a nuclear settlement, the United States agreed in February to begin that process. US ally Japan and many US lawmakers, however, oppose the action. South Korean Foreign Minister Song Min-soon said Friday that the US has pledged to take the North off its terror list in return for North Korea fulfilling promises to scrap its nuclear programs.
