North Korea is ready to quickly shut down its nuclear reactor after receiving funds that had been frozen in a banking dispute, the Foreign Ministry said Monday. "The shutdown is something that can be done immediately and it won't take long," Ri Kyong Son, vice spokesman at the ministry, told APTN in an interview in Pyongyang. North Korea missed an April deadline to close the Yongbyon nuclear reactor under a February agreement with the United States and four other countries, but has said its commitment to the deal remains unchanged.
