So…I guess Korea is no longer part of the Axis of Evil.
[quote]SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) – North Korea said Sunday it will immediately resume work to disable its nuclear plants after the United States removed it from a list of states that sponsor terrorism.
North Korea’s foreign ministry said it welcomed the U.S. move and would give international inspectors access to its main Yongbyon nuclear facility to oversee the crisis.
“We welcomed Washington’s moves to follow through on their responsibilities according to the agreement reached,” a spokesman for the country’s foreign ministry said in a statement carried by the (North) Korea Central News Agency.
In a version of the statement carried by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, North Korea also said it will now resume disabling its nuclear plants.
“With the move by the United States we will also fulfill our ‘action for action’ principle and resume the disabling of the (Yongbyon) nuclear facilities and allow inspectors from the United States and the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) to resume their responsibilities,” the statement said.
