Remarks Upon Arrival at Incheon Airport

Stephen W. Bosworth
Special Representative for North Korea Policy 
Seoul, South Korea
November 21, 2010


AMBASSADOR BOSWORTH: It is good to be back in Seoul. I am on a very quick trip through the region, consulting with our partners on next steps in the process of negotiating with the North Koreans. I will be meeting with the press for a longer period of time tomorrow morning after my meeting with the foreign minister, and then I will expect, I will look forward to taking a few questions. In the meantime, I really do not have anything to add and I look forward to seeing you all later. Thank you all very much.

QUESTION: This is quite a surprising trip, maybe. It is just two months…

AMBASSADOR BOSWORTH: It is not surprising to me.

QUESTION: Well, this is short notice, so would you please explain a little bit more.

AMBASSADOR BOSWORTH: I will do that tomorrow after I have had a chance to talk with the officials of the Korean government.

QUESTION: Just one thing. There was a New York Times article about the North Korean nuclear issue and new development. What is your assessment about that?

AMBASSADOR BOSWORTH: I will do that tomorrow. I have just got off a plane for thirty hours and I am not sure I want to get into that right now, but I will talk about it tomorrow.
