US says NKorea must address uranium program

US says NKorea must address uranium program

The U.S. envoy for North Korea says any future nuclear disarmament talks will have to deal with a nuclear program the North has only recently revealed.
Stephen Bosworth told reporters Wednesday that the North put the matter on the table by admitting to a uranium enrichment program that gives them a second way to make atomic bombs.
Bosworth traveled last week to North Korea to try to persuade the country to return to the stalled disarmament negotiations. A senior U.S. official says Bosworth brought a personal letter to leader Kim Jong Il written by Obama.
Bosworth would not confirm the letter, but he says that he did not bring back any message from Kim and did not meet with the leader.
