N. Korea says it halts nuclear reactor disablement


hosted.ap.org

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea said Tuesday it has stopped disabling its nuclear reactor and will consider restoring the plutonium-producing facility in anger over Washington's failure to remove it from the U.S. list of terror sponsors.

The North's announcement marks the emergence of the biggest hurdle yet to the communist nation's denuclearization process under a landmark deal last year and is expected to escalate tension in the nuclear talks involving China, Japan, the two Koreas, the U.S. and Russia.

Pyongyang's Foreign Ministry said it suspended the disablement work at the reactor and other facilities at its Yongbyon nuclear complex as of Aug. 14 because the U.S. did not keep its promise to delist Pyongyang as a terror sponsor under last year's deal.

Well here we go again with the nuclear blackmail from North Korea.
I guess now that there buddies in China are done in the spotlight, the other major socialist regime needs a little front page time.
The North's statement came shortly after Chinese President Hu Jintao left South Korea after summit talks with President Lee Myung-bak that included discussions on the nuclear issue.

Pretty convenient huh??

What happens next , well, your guess is as good as mine.
