US Ready to Aid North Korea if it Ends Nuke Program

The United States has indicated it is ready to match good-faith North Korean actions in the six-party negotiations aimed at ending that country's nuclear program.

The New York Times earlier reported that US and North Korean diplomats discussed specifics of a disarmament accord in talks in China.

The newspaper said an agreement would hinge on North Korea agreeing to begin dismantling some equipment it has been using to expand its nuclear arsenal, including a plutonium reprocessing facility refining spent reactor fuel into weapons-grade material.
