  • Leading article: A disarming display of diplomatic engagement
    Tuesday, 4 September 2007

    It all makes quite a contrast with the situation a year ago when conflict with the secretive regime seemed a far more likely prospect than an economic deal. Last July Pyongyang launched a series of long-range missiles into the Sea of Japan. Three mon...

  • Leading Article: The Basra endgame and the trading of blame
