Toshimitsu Shigemura, the Korea expert, said unequivocally that Roh Moo-hyun and Kim Jong Il could not agree on the inclusion of South Korea in an ultimate peace agreement that would formally end the Korean War.
Maybe I shouldn't have been so accepting of the common view after all. Now that I think about it, it is absurd to think that North Korea would dare to keep China out of the final deal. This would also prove that Mr. Kim is in control of his faculties after all.
And for this, Mr. Roh gets a 20% bump in his popularity?
