SEOUL/BEIJING (Reuters) - North Korea threw a deal on dismantling its nuclear programme into doubt on Tuesday, just one day after it was struck, vowing not to give up nuclear arms until Washington provides it with civilian atomic reactors. 

The U.S. State Department said the North's views, set out in a lengthy Foreign Ministry statement, did not match the agreement it signed at six-country talks in Beijing. Japan said the North's demand was unacceptable, Kyodo news agency reported.
