"Military discussions between North and South Korea ended suddenly yesterday with no improvement in the countries’ strained relations and no agreement about whether to hold more substantive talks. The failure of the talks is likely to create more uncertainty about the resumption of the six-nation talks about the North’s nuclear programs. North Korea, China, and Russia have pressed for a prompt resumption of that process.... South Korea, the United States, and Japan... have rejected the idea of new six-nation talks until substantive inter-Korean discussions are held." (02/10/11)
