Washington : North Korea has informed the US Saturday that it had shut down its controversial Yongbyon nuclear power plant and allowed inspectors in to view the facility, according to a report posted on The New York Times website.
North Korea told the US about the move at 9:30 a.m. Saturday through its representative office to the United Nations, the newspaper cited US chief negotiator Christopher Hill as saying.
The report came as a 10-member team of inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arrived in Pyongyang Saturday as part of a deal aimed at ending the North's nuclear weapons programme.
