North Korea will not give up its nuclear weapons until the United States provides civilian atomic reactors, Pyongyang said on Tuesday in a statement that significantly undermined a deal reached just a day earlier.

Six countries, including the North and the United States, had agreed on Monday to a set of principles on dismantling the Pyongyang’s nuclear programs in return for aid and recognizing its right to a civilian nuclear program.

Here’s hoping this can be salvaged. But remember; don’t trust a dictator.
