U.S. and North Korea Reach Compromise

The Financial Times reports the United States has reached a compromise with North Korea over declaration of its nuclear activities.  The United States has agreed Pyongyang does not need to publicly state a complete declaration of its nuclear activities.  The compromise would allow for a "secret side-agreement" in which North Korea would acknowledge concerns over proliferation and uranium enrichment, but a public document would include a complete declaration of its plutonium program.

Japan is also insisting North Korea account for Japanese citizens who were abducted by North Korea over several decades."
