McCain Says Six Party Talks Will Only Restart When North Korea Is Ready To Denuclearize

So is anyone heartbroken that the six party talks will not be restarting anytime soon?:

The United States will not allow the resumption of the long-stalled six-party talks on ending North Korea’s nuclear program until the communist country takes “meaningful” steps to denuclearize, a visiting U.S. senator said Monday.

The six-way talks, involving the two Koreas, the U.S., China, Russia and Japan, have been stalled since late 2008. The North has recently expressed its willingness to reopen the disarmament-for-assistance talks, and has rallied political backing from Russia and China.

Arizona Senator John McCain, however, echoed U.S. president Barack Obama when he demanded that the North first take substantial actions toward denuclearization before the U.S. allows the resumption of the talks. [Yonhap]
