A Glimmer of Sunlight

This CBS story suggests a glimmer of sunlight in North Korea-Western relations.  The Associated Press’s TV wing opened a North Korea bureau on Monday.  This is pretty big news.  Actually, it’s huge news.  North Korea—long viewed as the most secretive country in the world, has just allowed a major media outlet to set up a permanent presence in its capital.  I can’t think of a more meaningful step for them to take outside of actually being serious at the six-party negotiations.  Let’s hope there is more of the same on the horizon.
