Clinton has no Obama message for North Korea: White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton did not carry a message from President Barack Obama for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, the White House said on Tuesday.

“That’s not true,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters when asked about reports that Clinton had brought such a message during a surprise visit to North Korea to seek the release of two jailed U.S. journalists.
