Here is raw video of New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson leaving North Korea after meeting with Government officials there. Richardson seems to have succeeded in getting North Korea to say they will allow inspectors back into the country to check on their Nuclear Weapons programs, and to calm their reaction to South Korea’s military exercises.
