Korea’s Nuclear Declaration
Assistant Secretary Hill (Mar. 3): "Rather talking about ramping up the pressure, I’d rather ramp up the effort to find the solution. We are hopeful that we can find a formula for moving forward but what we need from the North Koreans is the willingness to give us the complete, correct declaration."
