N Koreans are suffering - Rice
14/06/2005 19:22 - (SA)

Washington - United States secretary of state Condoleezza Rice said
people had not prospered under the of North Korean leader, Kim
Jong-Il, but she steered clear of commenting on his mental health.

Asked on Monday about Kim's sanity during an interview on MSNBC's
Hardball, she said: "I don't know. I've never met the man."

She said it was clear that the people of North Korea had not prospered
under Kim's rule. Rice said: "They've suffered under this regime."

She said North Korea "could significantly improve the well-being of
their people" if they took advantage of the opportunity offered by
six-party nuclear disarmament talks.

Rice said if an agreement was reached, the United States and other
parties to the discussions were ready and willing to help North Korea.

In talks earlier this month, North Korean diplomats told US officials
they were willing to return to the discussions after boycotting them
for the past year.
