US, NK Hold Talks in New York

This story is just developing, so details of the meeting are not plentiful in the article, but at least officials from the two states have met face-to-face for the first time in more than a month.

It seems highly unlikely anything will come from this but it is reassuring to know the two sides seem willing to meet at least every once in a while. I would guess this meeting was facilitated in part due to the previous blog entries detailing how NK has praised President Bush last week for referring to Kim jong-Il as Mr. Kim, not simply as the "tyrannical dictator" of NK.
