The United States said Tuesday it has endorsed a plan aimed at disabling North Korea's nuclear facilities by year's end. Negotiators from six nations reached tentative agreement in Beijing on Sunday but said the plan required further consideration by their governments. The plan was to set out the steps to be taken in the de-nuclearization process for the rest of the year. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the lead US negotiator, Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill, briefed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Monday. He said Rice and Hill had breakfast with President George W. Bush on Tuesday. "We have conveyed to the Chinese government our approval for the draft statement. All the parties went back to their capitals. We studied it, examined it, and gave our approval to the Chinese. I can't speak to the status of all the other countries."
