North Korea has agreed to suspend uranium enrichment and agreed to a moratorium on nuclear, and long-range missile tests. The State Department says Pyongyang will also allow the International Atomic Energy inspectors to verify and monitor the moratorium on uranium enrichment and confirm disablement of its nuclear reactor at Yongbyon.

Karin Lee is executive director of the Washington-based National Committee on North Korea.
