Nuclear Deadlock .

Nuclear Deadlock(The Korea Times): "It is unfortunate that North Korea has failed to meet a Dec. 31 deadline for the disclosure of all its nuclear programs. The failure has prompted the United States, South Korea and other participants in the six-party denuclearization talks to express concerns that the North might backpedal on its nuclear disarmament process. They are losing patience with the recalcitrant communist country."
