US/ North Korea Relations

NPR's Ted Clark examines the emerging relationship between the United States and North Korea. During the last six years, North Korea has gradually ended its isolation and moderated its confrontational approach toward the US and American allies. In return, the United States has supplied food aid. South Korea also has provided incentives to draw the North out of its isolation.
