Progress on disabling North Korea's main nuclear facility was on schedule to be completed by year's end, but the toughest step - getting the North to give up existing weapons material - was still to come, the chief US negotiator said Tuesday. US Assistant of State Christopher Hill said six-party negotiations to end the North's nuclear programs were proceeding step by step, but that persuading the country "to give up all its weapons in one fell swoop is probably not going to happen." North Korea in February agreed to abandon its nuclear ambitions in return for 1 million tons of oil aid and political concessions, as part of long running negotiations with the United States, China, Japan, Russia and South Korea.
