North Korea has restarted its nuclear reactor at Yongbyon according to the IAEA


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has published a report on Sunday indicating that North Korea has been able to restart its Yongbyon nuclear reactor, the main reactor that the Asian country used to possess.

The UN agency has indicated that since “early July 2021, there have been indications of operation of the Yongbyon nuclear reactor, including the discharge of cooling water”.

In this regard, it has explained that “North Korea’s nuclear activities remain a matter of serious concern” and that “further indications of the operation of this reactor and other activities are deeply troubling”.

“The continuation of North Korea’s nuclear programme is a clear violation of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, which is deeply regrettable,” he said.

Following the report, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Mariano Grossi, has urged the Asian country “to fully comply with its obligations” with regard to the nuclear disarmament process and has expressed his willingness to return to Pyongyang after having been expelled in 2009.

This reactor was used for the manufacture of plutonium, which was used, among other things, in the nuclear tests that the Asian country carried out in October 2006.
