Pyongyang

The international consortium that has been building two nuclear reactors in North Korea has decided to halt the project. The original deal, negotiated by the Clinton administration, was that North Korea would cease all nuclear-weapons research in exchange for help from the U.S. and other countries in building nuclear reactors for energy production. North Korea revealed last year, though, that it was actively building nuclear weapons. Since then, the U.S. and Japan have been pushing for an end to the reactor construction.
