Washington's chief negotiator on North Korea said Tuesday he was confident Pyongyang would meet its commitment to stop enriching uranium by year's end. "I think by the end of the year we will have good reason to believe that whatever uranium enrichment program they have going, they will not have going by the end of the year," US Undersecretary of State Christopher Hill said in an address in Sydney. North Korea shut down its main nuclear reactor in July and pledged recently to disable its main nuclear facilities and declare all its nuclear programs by year's end in return for economic aid and political concessions.
