North Korea agrees to nuclear shutdown
by UPI

BEIJING -- The Russian envoy to the North Korean nuclear talks in Beijing said Pyongyang has agreed to declare and deactivate its nuclear facilities.

Vladimir Rakhmanin, Russia's delegate chief to the talks, said the North Korean delegation promised to comply with a disarmament deal that would result in a permanent dismantling of the country's nuclear facilities, Novosti reported Thursday.

"North Korea and its delegation said they are ready to declare and decommission -- this was said directly," Rakhmanin said.

Rakhmanin said North Korea has shown its intention to abide by the deal by shutting down its nuclear facilities in Yongbyon -- part of the first stage of the disarmament plan.

The Russian envoy said experts from the six parties involved in the talks -- China, Japan, Russia, the United States and the two Koreas -- may meet in Moscow in August or September ahead of a foreign ministerial meeting.

"In this period, Moscow will host a meeting of experts as part of the working group on security in northeast Asia," he said.
