(Newser) – South Korea today claimed Pyongyang is restoring its nuclear facilities, just days after stopping disablement work, the AP reports. North Korea blames America for not holding up its end of the deal by failing to follow through on a June promise to reward nuclear disarmament progress by removing it from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

South Korea confirmed the reassembling of the Yongbyon facility, which started 2 days ago. Fox News calls it a symbolic gesture since the bulk of the factory has been dismantled. Meanwhile, the State Department says it's working with Pyongyang to move negotiations forward.
