Clouds over South Korean sunshine policy

President Kim Dae Jung of South Korea has returned home after a six day visit to the United States.

Mr Kim said in Seoul that Washington had confirmed its support of South Korea's 'sunshine policy' of reconciliation with the North.

However, President Bush said there would be no further talks with North Korea until Washington had reviewed its policy towards Pyongyang.

Correspondents say the more cautious tone from Washington about North Korean missile tests and nuclear intentions has made more difficult President Kim Dae Jung's task in preparing for a visit to Seoul by the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-iL, due to take place in the next few months.
