North Korean counterfeiting of US dollars

This is from Jim Dunnigan's Strategypage.com.
January 25, 2006: North Korea refuses to resume nuclear weapons negotiations unless the United States stops interfering with North Korean counterfeiting (of American currency) and money laundering operations. These activities are a major source of foreign currency for the north, but the U.S. has imposed economic sanctions on North Korea because of it.
You gotta love it: "We'll talk to you about limiting our nukes if you don't object to our undermining your economy..."
