North Korea committed to dismantling uranium, plutonium facilities: White House

U.S. prepared to "mobilize investment, improve infrastructure, enhance food security, and more"

North Korea has committed to dismantling its uranium and plutonium processing facilities during prior discussions with the U.S.,  a "fact sheet" published by the White House on Thursday said.
