North Korea is expelling the UN's nuclear inspectors and has vowed to reactivate its nuclear reactor, the International Atomic Energy Agency has said.
Pyongyang told the monitors to remove seals and cameras from the Yongbyon site, which makes bomb-grade plutonium, and leave the country as quickly as possible.
It also said it was ceasing all cooperation with the energy agency, which is the UN's nuclear watchdog.
Hours after the UN Security Council issued a statement condemning its rocket launch, North Korea announced it was pulling out of talks - with the US, China, Russia, South Korea and Japan - on the deal.
"We will never again take part in such talks and will not be bound by any agreement reached at the talks," a foreign ministry statement said.
