Obama, Bill Clinton talk about N. Korean mission

August 19, 2009


— Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that information her husband brought back from North Korea has been “extremely helpful” by providing a window into what’s happening in the reclusive country.

But it didn’t change the Obama administration’s position on North Korea, which is under pressure from the U.S. and its allies to end its nuclear weapons program.

“Our policy remains the same. Our policy is consistent,” she said.

Clinton made the remarks at a State Department news conference with Colombian Foreign Minister Jaime Bermudez as President Barack Obama met with Bill Clinton about the former president’s mission to North Korea that won the freedom of two imprisoned American journalists.
