U.S.: North Korea must fulfill nuclear commitment

North Korea must first fulfill its commitment to disable nuclear facilities before the United States acts to remove Pyongyang from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, the White House said on Tuesday.

"We understand that disablement activities have been halted temporarily and that North Korea has linked the resumption of these activities to the rescission of its designation as a state sponsor of terrorism," White House spokesman Tony Fratto said.

"We've informed North Korea that we will take action to rescind its designation when it fulfills its commitment regarding verification," he said.
