From Korea Report (koreareport2.blogspot.com)

When this blog was initiated in January of this year as a test posting, conditions in Korean peninsula were not highly optimistic: inter-Korean relations turned chilly due to the lack of progress in the six party negotiations over nuclear disarmament and security issues. Then, things turned around. The six party talks resumed and a timetable for settlement was agreed upon. The contending issue over Banco Delta Asia funds was resolved. South Korea´s Roh administration pushed for speedier peace process and settlement. The Bush administration showed new flexibility and direct approach in negotiating with North Korea. Test trains ran on the inter-Korea railway.

Then the second inter-Korea summit took place in October. Inspired by these fast-paced changes that brought promises for peaceful settlement and reconciliation, Korea Report was re-activated in October after dormancy, with continuous coverage of pertinent news and commentaries. Now, new variables, mainly domestic developments in South Korea and the US and North Korea´s reactions, will be surfacing in coming months that will leave repurcussions on the peace process. Stay tuned to Korea Report by visiting the site periodically, making a bookmark (or adding to your "favorites"), subscribing to email service or syndicated feeds.
