N. Korea to give nuke files to U.S.

May 1, 2008 at 3:04 PM

WASHINGTON, May 1 (UPI) -- North Korea tentatively has agreed to give the United States thousands of records from its Yongbyon nuclear reactor from 1990, officials said.

Administration and congressional officials said the move would supply supportive material for an expected declaration of the North's nuclear programs.

The United States wants that access plus samples of toxic waste and destruction of the "cooling tower" at the North Korean main nuclear complex.

The tentative agreement was reached last week in Pyongyang between Kim Kye-gwan, the chief North Korean negotiator, and Sung Kim, director of the Korea office at the U.S. State Department, The Washington Times said Thursday.
