The North Korean envoy to six-nation nuclear talks said Saturday his government will grant a US demand to shut down a plutonium-producing reactor only if Washington offers concessions in exchange. "As we have to follow the `action for action' principle, we will act if action is made," Vice Foreign Minister Kim Gye Gwan told The Associated Press as he prepared to return home following the close of the latest round of disarmament talks. "We will never move first," Kim said. The US envoy to the talks, Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill, urged the North on Friday to shut down the reactor at Yongbyon but said he had rejected Kim's demand for aid in exchange.
