Sec. Clinton: Peace With N. Korea If It Eliminates Nukes

Friday, 13 Feb 2009 02:01 PM

NEW YORK -- The United States would be willing to normalize ties with North Korea, sign a peace treaty and provide energy and economic aid if the communist state is prepared to completely eliminate its nuclear weapons program, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday.

"If North Korea is genuinely prepared to completely and verifiably eliminate their nuclear weapons program, the Obama administration will be willing to normalize bilateral relations, replace the peninsula's long-standing armistice agreements with a permanent peace treaty, and assist in meeting the energy and other economic needs of the North Korean people," Clinton said in a speech before visiting Asia next week.
