North Korea Expresses Anger Over Not Being Removed From U.S. State Sponsors of Terrorism List
From today's Washington Post:
Angry that the United States has not removed it from a list of states that sponsor terrorism, North Korea said Tuesday that it has stopped disabling its nuclear reactor at Yongbyon and will consider rebuilding it.
The announcement comes two months after the communist state released long-awaited details of its plutonium program and dynamited the cooling tower at the reactor -- moves that prompted the Bush administration to say it would drop North Korea from the U.S. terror list and lift some trade sanctions.
Since then, though, the United States has declined to take North Korea off the list, citing lack of progress in the North's promise to allow outside experts to verify the scope its nuclear program.
