From South Korea's Chosunilbo:

There was optimism on Wednesday that North Korea is serious this time about disabling its nuclear facilities under the Feb. 13 six-party agreement, but some experts warn it is too soon to break out the champagne. After a working group meeting on normalizing bilateral ties in New York on Tuesday, U.S. chief negotiator Christopher Hill reported "a sense of optimism on both sides that we will get through the 60-day period and achieve all our objectives set out in Beijing. We had a long, useful discussion on the implementation of the next step."

I, for one, am not ready to break out the champagne.
