US envoy to SKorea hopeful for peninsula

The outgoing American ambassador to Seoul says she's optimistic about the possibilities for peace on the Korean peninsula, convinced that what she calls "genuine" negotiations between the North and South could lead to much improved relations.
Ambassador Kathleen Stephens told the annual dinner of the Korea Society on Tuesday night that the people of North Korea share the same human potential and aspirations as their brothers and sisters in the south.
Stephens notes that tensions have run high between the North and South in recent years, and says Pyongyang is on a "wrong path." But she says "genuine negotiations" could lead the North down another path leading to better relations with its southern neighbor.
