S. Korea [and Other Nations] Cautiously Welcome Bush Speech
South Korea cautiously welcomed President Bush's warning to "the world's most dangerous regimes" Wednesday, calling it a signal for North Korea to resume talks on its nuclear weapons programs.
Other nations applauded the president's pledge to confront "the regimes that harbor and support terrorists."
In Japan, parts of Bush's speech were carried live on television. News reports led with his defense of the war in Iraq and support for Libya's cooperation on nuclear programs.
But there were no indications that any of China's television stations, which are all government-controlled, carried the speech live.
