Apr 21, 2009 | Posted by: The Associated Press | Full story: The Associated Press
The head of the U.N.'s atomic watchdog expressed confidence that President Barack Obama's approach to North Korea and Iran will eventually help resolve international disputes over their nuclear programs.
'While I am distressed because, of course, what has happened in North Korea is a setback, I am optimistic about the new environment,' International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei said Monday in Beijing.
ElBaradei spoke after Pyongyang last week vowed to quit six-nation nuclear negotiations and restart its atomic program in anger over the U.N. Security Council's criticism of its April 5 rocket launch. It also kicked out all international monitors of its nuclear facilities.
ElBaradei must want to be a writer for Letterman and Leno.
