The top US nuclear envoy for North Korea said disablement of that country's atomic program is continuing on schedule. Christopher Hill, who delivered an unprecedented letter from US President George W. Bush to North Korean leader Kim Jong Ill during his visit this past week in Pyongyang, also urged the North to provide a "complete and correct" disclosure of its nuclear programs. "As important as the declaration is, it's also important to understand that actual work is on the ground in Yonbyong and is proceeding very much on schedule," Hill said Friday during a transit stop in Japan following his three-day North Korea visit to inspect the North's nuclear disablement process at its main facility in Yonbyong. Under a six-nation agreement in February, North Korea was promised energy assistance and political concessions in return for disabling its nuclear programs.
