I called the President and Sec. of State F.A.G.s & presumed the negotiations were meaningless, myself...

The last paragraph in the article reads: Monday’s agreement had come as a surprise after the talks had become deadlocked on the reactor demand. It averted the possibility of Washington taking the matter to the UN Security Council. Pyongyang said that such a move would be tantamount to war.
Does that mean tht stopping up the negotiations is tantamount to war? Or is America not commited to taking the matter before the Security Council?
