Cambodia has a long fraternal relationship with North Korea, going back to the day of Prince Sihanouk.
So, it should not come as a surprise that Phnom Penh would announce that the DPRK may return to the six party talks in Beijing without preconditions.
This statement has hardly made a ripple, despite the sudden flow of printer’s ink in the world’s press about what’s going on in North Korea. So, is the announcement to be ignored? Or is it receiving serious consideration in Washington, Seoul, and Tokyo–the three capitols who dismiss statements as to North Korea’s intentions on the talks which remain in suspension?
GuamDiary can only fall back on the banal observation–only time will tell.
