  • North Korea agrees to shut down nuclear weapons related facilities

    North Korea on Monday night agreed to shut down its main nuclear weapons-related facilities in return for huge amounts of energy assistance as part of a hard-won draft deal aimed at disarming North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme.

    Details of the agreement were vague early Tuesday, although Japan’s Kyodo news agency said Pyongyang would receive 1m tonnes of fuel oil aid for disabling its nuclear facilities. More details of the draft are expected later Tuesday.

    “There was an agreement on the key differences of North Korea’s actions for denuclearisation, their scope and how far they’ll go, and the other countries’ corresponding measures and the scale of assistance,” said Chun Yung-woo, the South Korean negotiator.

    “North Korea basically agreed to all the measures in the draft,” he said, adding that the talks would continue Tuesday on the details.

    The nuclear talks appeared headed for collapse after five days of negotiations bogged down over disagreements on energy aid. However that changed after what host China called 16 hours of “extraordinarily intensive consultations” that continued into the early hours on Tuesday.

    All six parties in the North Korean nuclear talks planned to discussing the provisions with their capitals, before resuming discussions in Beijing on Tuesday.

    Christopher Hill, the US nuclear negotiator, described the draft as an “excellent” first step.

    “I’m encouraged by this,” he said. “We might be able to take a real step towards denuclearisation.”

    But deals with North Korea have a habit of coming unglued, and analysts worried that it might be difficult to agree on exact terms.

    After an ultimatum that the talks would end on Monday regardless of whether there was an agreement, North Korea drastically lowered its demands for outside energy aid, diplomats said.

    North Korea is understood to have been demanding 2,000 megawatts of electricity and 2m tonnes of heavy fuel oil annually – about double the aid agreed with the Clinton administration in a similar agreement in 1994 – in return for taking steps towards denuclearisation.

    Mr Chun said the five parties – China, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the US – agreed to shoulder equally the burden of supplying energy aid for the North, although he did not specify how much energy would be provided.

    In return, North Korea agreed to “shut down” its nuclear weapons-related facilities and specify the steps for a shutdown within 60 days.

    The US had been aiming for more than the simple “freeze” that Pyongyang agreed in the 1994 deal, which collapsed four years ago after the Bush administration claimed North Korea was operating a secret uranium enrichment programme.

    A senior official in Washington said the US administration was “happy” with the deal but refused to speculate on Pyongyang’s final response.

              North Korea already has nukes, one of the largest stockpiles of chemical weapons plus biological weapons as deterrents, so no surprise there.
