US shrugs off DPRK's halt to nuclear disabling
Adjust font size:

The United States shrugged off on Wednesday the decision by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to halt disabling its nuclear facility.

The United Sates can not get "overly excited by a down in the situation right now because this process does go up and down," State Department spokesman Robert Wood said.

The DPRK said Tuesday that it would stop disabling its nuclear facilities and consider restoring the Yongbyon nuclear reactor that can make material for atomic bombs, accusing the United States of violating a disarmament

The United States has criticized the DPRK move as "a step backward."

The United States has said it is not going to remove the DPRK from a terror list due to a lack of a strong inspection regime of its nuclear program.

Under an agreement reached at the six-party talks in Beijing in February last year, the DPRK agreed to abandon all nuclear weapons and programs and declare all its nuclear programs and facilities by the end of 2007, in exchange for diplomatic and economic incentives.
