WASHINGTON Diplomats briefed on the matter say President Bush signed off on
the move on Friday in a bid to salvage a faltering disarmament
accord aimed at getting North Korea to abandon atomic weapons. But
they say North Korea will be put back on the list if it doesn't
comply with the inspections.
The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because the State
Department has not yet announced the step. It comes as North Korea
moves to restart a disabled nuclear reactor and takes other actions
that threaten the agreement.
