PacNet #38 – North-South Summit: Same Bed, Different Dreams?

ROK President Roh Moo-hyun is clearly looking forward to his first face-to-face meeting with North Korean Dear Leader Kim Jong-il in Pyongyang Oct. 2-4. What’s still not real clear is what the two leaders will ­or will not ­talk about. Just as the process leading up to the meeting announcement was kept secret, so too is the current agenda. In this case, however, it could be because there has yet to be a true meeting of the minds about what will and won’t be discussed.
