North and South Korea have agreed to resume ministerial talks, a day after a nuclear disarmament deal was reached. Cabinet-level talks have not taken place between the two Koreas since Pyongyang’s missile tests last year. A deal was reached Feb. 13 during six-nation talks in Beijing, in which Pyongyang pledged to shut its main nuclear reactor in return for fuel aid. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice welcomed the agreement, but warned that it was “not the end of the story.” (BBC)
