Amid Tensions in North Korea, A Diplomatic Mission for Nuclear Transparency

Monday, December 20, 2010

As South Korea staged live artillery drills on an island near its disputed boarder with the North, New Mexico's Governor Bill Richardson was pressing the reclusive neighboring country not to retaliate. Richardson was in the country on a diplomatic mission to convince North Korean officials to allow nuclear arms inspectors allowed back into the country. Richardson was scheduled to make a statement from China today, but bad weather has delayed his flight out of North Korea. Chris Hogg, reporting for our partners the BBC from China, joins us for more on the story.
