US warns N. Korea satellite launch would scrap agreement

March 16, 2012 18:35

WASHINGTON - The United States warned North Korea on Friday that its plan to launch a satellite into orbit with a long-range rocket would violate its February agreement on a nuclear moratorium and endanger US plans to resume food aid.

"This calls into question whether, when the DPRK entered into that agreement with us, they did so in good faith," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

North Korea's official name is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
