Bush writes his first letter to N Korean leader

UNITED STATES President George W Bush has written a letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il in what seems to be their first ever direct communication, the White House said yesterday.

Bush wrote letters last Saturday to Kim and the leaders of China, Russia, Japan and South Korea as part of six-country efforts to dismantle the Stalinist regime's atomic activities, said spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

"President Bush wrote letters to all the leaders involved in the six-party talks last Saturday, December 1," Johndroe said.

"In these letters, the president reiterated our commitment to the six-party talks and stressed the need for North Korea to come forward with a full and complete declaration of their nuclear programmes, as called for in the September 2005 six-party agreement" said Johndroe.

A US administration official indicated that the letter was the first direct communication between Bush and the leader whose country he branded part of an "axis of evil" with Iran and Saddam Hussein's Iraq in 2002.

The North shocked the world with its first nuclear test in October 2006. But this year it agreed, under a six-nation pact, which includes the US, to disable its plutonium-producing plants and declare all nuclear programmes and facilities by year-end. In return it would receive major energy aid.

US Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill delivered the letter to North Korean Foreign Minister Pak Ui-chun this week, the North's official Korean Central News Agency said in a three-line report. which gave no further details.
