North Korea has resumed operation of a nuclear reactor

Reactivation of Reactor Could Mean Pyongyang Continues Nuclear Weapons Development Program

North Korea appears to have restored a plutonium-producing reactor at its Yongbyon nuclear plant, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which has expressed concern.

The reactor at Yongbyon was shut down in December 2018, according to the report, dated August 27th.

The resumption of this five-megawatt reactor could mean that Pyongyang is continuing its nuclear weapons program, blatantly violating UN Security Council resolutions.

The possible resumption of operation of this reactor follows recent information in which Pyongyang is also using a short-range radiochemical laboratory to separate plutonium from spent reactor fuel.
