N. Korea: We can disarm when we receive funds

North Korea's Foreign Ministry said Monday that shutting down the country's nuclear reactor can be done quickly once Pyongyang receives funds that had been frozen in a banking dispute. "The shutdown is something that can be done immediately and it won't take long," Ri Kyong Son, vice spokesman at the ministry, told APTN in an interview in Pyongyang. North Korea committed on February 13, 2007 to disarm itself of nuclear weapons and begin steps to end its nuclear weapons development.
