President George W. Bush said Wednesday that North Korea would face consequences should it renege on its agreement to lay bare and then destroy its nuclear weapons program. In a news conference, Bush did not specify any consequences but restated elements of an agreement the North Koreans made with five negotiating partners, including the United States, that eventually would eliminate the communist-led country's nuclear arms. "North Korea has said that they will stop proliferating, just like they have said they will fully disclose and disable any weapons programs," Bush said. "Step two will be full declaration of any plutonium that has been manufactured and-or the construction of bombs, along with a full declaration of any proliferation activities," Bush said.
