North Korea Cooperating With Nuclear Inspectors, IAEA SaysU.N. inspectors completed the first stage of shuttering North Korea's main nuclear reactor without any resistance from Pyongyang, the Associated Press reported today.
"We have a full cooperation with the D.P.R.K. authorities," said departing International Atomic Energy Agency inspector Adel Tolba. Tolba and his nine-member team supervised the initial shutdown of the main Yongbyon nuclear reactor. They were replaced Saturday by a fresh group of six agency inspectors.
