Flashback Bill Clinton 1994: This Deal Means NK 'Will Freeze and Dismantle Its Nuclear Program'


Clinton deal in 1994 with North Korea was supposed to freeze Pyongyang's nuclear program in return for fuel and efforts towards normalized political and economic relations. Here's Clinton getting taken to the cleaners by Kim Jong-Il, who later violated the framework and started developing nuclear weapons at secret sites.

"Before I take your questions, I'd like to say just a word about the framework with North Korea that Ambassador Gallucci signed this morning. This is a good deal for the United States," Clinton said at the press conference.

"North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons"
