SEOUL, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. North Korea is expanding its activities at the Yongbyon Nuclear Research Centre, the U.S. Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) reported on Friday, referring to satellite imagery data.
ISIS raised the possibility that the North's uranium enrichment program is also making progress. “Since earlier this year, North Korea has been expanding its gas centrifuge enrichment plant at Yongbyon,” it said. “This plant is believed to be producing low enriched uranium fuel for the light water reactor (LWR) or for further enrichment to weapon-grade at Yongbyon or elsewhere.”
In November, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced that it did not exclude the possibility that North Korea could restore and launch the nuclear reactor at Yongbyon. IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano said that “the agency continues to monitor the developments mainly through satellite imagery,” having no access to the facility.
According to Amano, “North Korea’s nuclear program remains a matter of serious concern.” “I urge the authorities of the republic to fully meet their obligations under the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and to cooperate promptly with the agency to comply with the safeguards agreement and resolve all outstanding issues,” he concluded.
