Obama Administration Says Kim Jong Il Died Amid Nuclear Talks
The United States was close to announcing a deal that would put a stop to North Korea’s uranium enrichment program when the country’s leader, Kim Jong Il, died, according to a senior U.S. official.
The Obama Administration was allegedly planning an announcement that the United States would make a large donation of food aid to North Korea; and, in turn, the country would end its controversial uranium enrichment program.
The leader’s death came just as Glyn Davies, U.S. envoy for North Korean nuclear issues, returned to Washington for consultations after talks in Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing over the nuclear issue.
Officials are now worried about North Korea’s intentions, and doubts have grown amid reports that Kim Jong Il’s health problems would open the leader’s position to his son Kim Jong Un — a man believed to be in his late 20s, about whom little is known.
