Bolton says the US strategy to North Korea is a "profound mistake" [AFP]
North Korea's recent declaration detailing its nuclear activities has led the administration of US president George Bush to remove North Korea from the US list of state sponsors of terrorism.

It also clears the way for the isolated regime to receive more fuel and food aid.

The thawing of relations is an amazing turnaround just six years after Bush branded North Korea as part of the "Axis of Evil."

On Thursday Riz Khan speaks to former US Ambassador the United Nations John Bolton about the new US strategy of dealing with North Korea, which Bolton considers a "profound mistake".
