1995: North Korea officially endorsed a nuclear pact with the US to suspend its nuclear program in exchange for a $4.5 billion assistance program to build two safeguarded light water power reactors. The agreement required that all reactor and reprocessing plant work be halted, that all irradiated fuel remain under safeguards, and that North Korea's domestic reactors eventually be dismantled.
