VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

GOOGLE CHAIRMAN ERIC SCHMIDT ARRIVED IN NORTH KOREA MONDAY TO GET A FIRST HAND LOOK AT THE COMMUNIST COUNTRY'S ECONOMY AND SOCIAL MEDIA.

NATS/UPSOUND:

Eric Schmidt/Google Executive Chairman: "No Interviews"

SCHMIDT IS PART OF A PRIVATE DELEGATION THAT INCLUDES FORMER NEW MEXICO GOVERNOR AND DIPLOMATIC TROUBLE SHOOTER BILL RICHARDSON.

SOUNDBITE (English) Bill Richardson, Former Governor of New Mexico:

We are going to ask about the American detainee who is here. We are interested in the economic and political situation. We are concerned about the missile launches and we are concerned about the importance of dialogue."

DESPITE THE DELEGATION'S HUMANITARIAN MISSION, THE U-S STATE DEPARTMENT IS CRITICIZING THEIR VISIT, CALLING IT "UNHELPFUL".

THE GOOGLE EXECUTIVE HAS SPOKEN FREQUENTLY ON THE IMPORTANCE OF PROVIDING PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WITH INTERNET ACCESS AND TECHNOLOGY.

BUT MOST NORTH KOREANS ONLY HAVE ACCESS TO A DOMESTIC INTRANET, WHILE A SMALL ELITE HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THE WORLD WIDE WEB.

THEIR VISIT COMES LESS THAN ONE MONTH AFTER NORTH KOREA DEFIANTLY FIRED A SATELLITE INTO SPACE ON A LONG-RANGE ROCKET THAT WASHINGTON AND SEOUL HAVE CONDEMNED.
