The US envoy, Christopher Hill, who is visiting North Korea to hold talks about the country's nuclear weapons program, has publicly announced that the country is ready to "promptly" shut down its Yongbyon reactor. I suppose it's a matter of just how long "promptly" indicates. Mr. Hill himself said, "I come away from this two-day set of meetings buoyed by a sense that we are going to be able to achieve our full objectives... but also burdened by the realisation of the fact that we are going to have to spend a great deal of time, a great deal of effort, a lot of work in achieving these."
