North Korean state media said the international pact Pyongyang agreed to Tuesday requires only a temporary suspension of the country's nuclear facilities. The report from the Korean Central News Agency said the talks in China's capital were held in a "sincere atmosphere" and were aimed at finding ways to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. "At the talks, the parties decided to offer economic and energy aid equivalent to 1 million tons of heavy fuel oil in connection with the DPRK's temporary suspension of the operation of its nuclear facilities," it said, referring to the country by the initials of its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
