US food aid for north korea would bring nuclear talks a step closer

from ap: The United States was poised to announce a significant donation of food aid to North Korea this week before the nation announced the death of supreme leader Kim Jong Il. The donation, which could now be delayed, would be the first concrete accomplishment after months of behind-the-scenes diplomatic contacts between the two wartime enemies. An agreement by North Korea to suspend its controversial uranium enrichment program would have likely followed within days. A broad outline of the emerging agreement has been made known to The Associated Press by people close to the negotiations.
