| U.S. says North Korea has not met terms of nuclear deal
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - North Korea has not met its commitment to fully account for its nuclear activities by the end of 2007 under a disarmament agreement, the United States said on Sunday, urging Pyongyang to comply with its obligations.
North Korea, which tested a nuclear bomb in 2006, is facing an 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT) December 31 deadline to reveal details of its nuclear program under a disarmament-for-aid deal it reached with the United States, China, Russia, Japan and South Korea.
"It is unfortunate that North Korea has not yet met its commitments by providing a complete and correct declaration of its nuclear programs and slowing down the process of disablement," State Department spokesman Tom Casey said in a statement.
"We urge North Korea to deliver a complete and correct declaration of all its nuclear weapons programs and nuclear weapons and proliferation activities and complete the agreed disablement," Casey said.
