North Korea 'failing on nuclear deal'

World: I am shocked about this startling and unforeseen development.

The US has said North Korea has failed to provide all the information about its nuclear programme it had promised in return for international aid.
A US State Department spokesman said it was unfortunate North Korea had not yet met its commitments and was "slowing down the process of disablement".

Pyongyang agreed in October to declare its nuclear activities and disable the facilities at Yongbyon by 31 December.

In return, regional powers agreed to supply fuel aid and diplomatic rewards.

The exchange was the second part of a deal agreed at six-party talks between China, the US, Japan, Russia and North and South Korea in February, when Pyongyang said it would take the first steps towards nuclear disarmament.
