US welcomes deal on Korean nuclear issue
font size    

The United States welcomes the agreement by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to end its nuclear weapons program but it needs to live up to it, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said on Monday.

The nuclear deal is "good," McClellan said. However, "North Korea now needs to live up to the agreement. That means dismantling their nuclear programs and allowing for verification to demonstrate that it has ended its nuclear activities," he said.

The spokesman stressed the implementation is going to be key and "we will see as we move forward."

The fourth round of six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue concluded in Beijing on Monday with the adoption of a common statement, in which the DPRK says it is committed to abandoning all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs.

The common statement also declared the DPRK has the right to the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, while other parties have expressed their respect and agreed to discuss, at an appropriate time, the subject of the provision of lightwater reactor to the DPRK.

The fifth round of six-party talks, which involves the DPRK, the United States, China, the Republic of Korea, Russia and Japan, is scheduled to be held in Beijing in early November.
