"In exchange, the economically struggling North will receive oil and other aid. The US, as part of the agreement, promised to begin the process of removing the country from the terrorism list and work toward full diplomatic relations.
North Korea has already received 50,000 tons of heavy fuel oil from Seoul in return for the shutdown of its Yongbyon reactor in July.
The country will eventually get further energy or other aid equivalent to 950,000 tons of heavy fuel oil in return for irreversibly disabling the reactor and ending all its nuclear programmes, but has yet to set a date by when it will disable its nuclear facilities."
There's a word that might describe this. Appeasement.
Especially considering this:
"However, (Hill) declined to say whether the disablement would include more than the plutonium-producing nuclear reactor in Yongbyon, which North Korea shut down in July."
