A North Korean diplomat confirmed Sunday that Pyongyang had shut down its sole operating nuclear reactor after receiving an initial shipment of oil aid, and said U.N. nuclear inspectors would start work to confirm it. "Immediately after the arrival of the first heavy fuel oil, the facilities were shut down and the (International Atomic Energy Agency) personnel will verify that maybe by now, or from today in Korea," Kim Myong Gil, minister at the North's mission to the United Nations in New York, told The Associated Press by telephone.
