North Korea Agrees on Verification and Disabling Nuclear Plant

  • VOA News

North Korea has pledged to finish disabling its biggest nuclear facility within months in exchange for fuel oil and other economic aid.

The agreement was reached during six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear weapons program which concluded in Beijing on Saturday
At the talks the North also agreed to allow inspectors from the six nations to visit the North's nuclear facilities, review documents, and interview technical personnel to make sure the program is being shut down.

Experts from the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency would also be allowed in to monitor the process.

A joint statement issued at the end of the three days of talks said the North will complete steps to disable its Yongbyon Nuclear Plant by the end of October.

On the same date, Pyongyang is to receive a promised shipment of heavy fuel oil from the six nations negotiating an end to North Korea's nuclear program.


Disarmament talks resumed Thursday after a nine-month pause.

The United States, South Korea, China, Japan and Russia agreed to resume negotiations after Pyongyang handed over a list of its nuclear facilities in late June.
