N. Korea Gives Up Some of Its Nuke Secrets

Significant parts of North Korea's nuclear program will not be in the dossier, including details about its nuclear arsenal. Also not included are documents related to its suspected program of developing weapons fueled by enriched uranium or how much help North Korea provided to Syria for its nuclear program, which was bombed last year by Israeli warplanes.

Those issues will be tackled in upcoming negotiations and could lead to further easing of sanctions against North Korea.

Hadley called the sanctions that were lifted today "relatively minor." North Korea is still heavily sanctioned by both the U.S. and the U.N.

Bush said that to end its isolation, North Korea must, for instance, dismantle all of its nuclear facilities and resolve outstanding questions on its highly enriched uranium and proliferation activities "and end these activities in a way that we can fully verify."

"If North Korea continues to make the right choices it can repair its relationship with the international community ... If North Korea makes the wrong choices, the United States and its partners in the six-party talks will act accordingly," Bush said.
