The U.S. envoy to the six-nation talks on North Korea
The U.S. envoy to the six-nation talks on North Korea said the decommissioning of nuclear facilities in the reclusive state was proceeding on schedule, China's Xinhua agency said on Wednesday.

On concluding his three-day visit to Pyongyang, Christopher Hill, assistant secretary of state for Asia-Pacific affairs, said he had inspected nuclear facilities in Yongbyon and met with the North Korean envoy to the six-party talks, Kim Kye-Gwan.

"I would say the disablement activities are going well on schedule... But we have to keep working because we have more to do to meet our deadlines," Hill told journalists in Pyongyang.

The six-nation talks involve North and South Korea, Russia, the U.S., Japan, and China. North Korea has agreed to disable its main nuclear facilities under a deal signed in October.

In return for its cooperation, North Korea is to receive aid equivalent to one million tons of fuel oil, and the U.S. has promised to remove the country from its blacklist of countries suspected of aiding terrorism.
