NKorea, IAEA to discuss nuclear reactor shut down

UN nuclear monitors were set to hold talks with officials in North Korea on Tuesday to discuss how to verify the long-delayed shutdown of the communist country's main nuclear reactor. The North Korean government vowed Monday to move forward with a February agreement to shut down its Yongbyon reactor in exchange for aid, after announcing that a dispute over frozen bank funds that had held up disarmament efforts was now finally over.
