North Korea - Suspicious Minds - Part 3 of 3

US President Barak Obama had been awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 2009 and is now planning to visit the DMZ in an effort to garner peace between North and South Korea.

The DMZ is the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas and the visit of the US President is being perceived as an attempt to dissuade North Korea from going ahead with its so-called space rocket launches which appears to be a disguised way to test its nuclear arsenal.

The visit is significant because it is scheduled almost exactly two years after the sinking of a South Korean warship, apparently by the North Koreans.

The visit to the DMZ would herald the start of his 3-day tour to Seoul, to attend an international summit on how to keep nuclear weapons from falling into the hands of terrorists.

There would be 50 nations participating in the meet and the objective would be to ensure global lockdown of all nuclear material by 2014.
