Will North Korea Respond to the Boston Marathon Bombing?

PRC President Xi Jinping made a telephone call of condolence to President Obama, and FM Yang Jiechi reached out to John Kerry, according to the Chinese MOFA website (only on the Chinese-language page so far).

Iran's Foreign Ministry condemned the bombing as a "source of sorrow" (while taking a swipe at the West for removing the terrorist listing for the MEK).

Don't see anything on the Korean Central News Agency site yet.  One might think that the DPRK might interrupt its fulminations about US nuclear aggression to score some humanitarian/diplomatic points, especially considering John Kerry's Boston origins.

We'll see...
