North Korea may invite UN official to visit in quid pro quo

UNITED NATIONS -- North Korean delegates offered a United Nations investigator the chance to visit their country in exchange for changes in a General Assembly resolution condemning the country's human rights record.

     "I've been able to meet with the DPRK (North Korea) officially yesterday afternoon for the first time in 10 years," Marzuki Darusman, the special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea, said at a U.N. meeting Tuesday. He later told the press that "there was discussion about a possible visit."
