North Korea has told a US diplomat it will soon declare its nuclear programs under an international disarmament agreement, a news report said Saturday.
The North stated the position to Sung Kim, the State Department's top Korea expert, when he visited the country earlier this week, Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unidentified diplomatic source.
Kim, who returned to Seoul on Friday after a three-day trip to the North, stressed to North Korean officials that the declaration should be "sufficient and complete" and include its suspected uranium enrichment program, Yonhap said.
Kim briefed South Korean officials Saturday on the outcome of his discussions in the North, it said.
