The US State Department said Friday the United States would be sending a team of experts on Tuesday to visit North Korea's nuclear reactor. The officials will work to create a plan for future teams to begin the disablement of the Yongbyon reactor, as specified in a six-nation nuclear disarmament accord, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. McCormack said the leader of the US delegation would be the State Department's top Korea expert, Sung Kim. He said the team would be made up of technical experts from various departments of the US government. "This team that leaves next week is going to be putting in place the road map, so that you get from where we are right now to a disabled Yongbyon facility at the end of the year," he said. Other teams would then go to North Korea to disable the facilities, he added.
