U.S. Pleased With Korea Nuclear Agreement – Nedra Pickler

From AP, via the Washington Post:

North Korea agreed to stop building nuclear weapons and to allow international inspections. In exchange, the country will get energy aid, economic cooperation and security assurances.

The deal announced Monday comes after two years of talks between North Korea, the United States and four other nations. Bush said it is “a formula that we all hope works.”
