North Korea said Friday the US had agreed to remove it from a list of terror-sponsoring nations and lift other sanctions for Pyongyang disabling its nuclear facilities. A report from the North's official Korean Central News Agency said "the US decided to take such political measures as delisting the (North) as a terrorism sponsor" at international arms talks. The North also said Washington would stop treating the communist nation under the US Trading with the Enemy Act, a measure that restricts trade, "in return for the North's neutralization of its nuclear facilities by the end of 2007."
