Russian officials say North Korea is ready to impose a moratorium on tests of weapons of mass destruction and resume talks on ending its nuclear weapons programs. The announcement took place during talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, his son Kim Chong 'Il and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at a military base on the outskirts of the eastern Siberian city of Ulan-Ude. This latest effort is designed to bring in financial aid for North Korea, which continues to struggle economically.
