NORTH Korea sparks new nuclear weapons fears as experts confirm uranium factory is now active
Kim Jung-un has repeatedly denied the existence of the Kangson nuclear site near the capital Pyongyang, which is what caused a breakdown in talks with Donald Trump last year. Now, the IAEA believes the facility is working with weapons-grade uranium once again.
Rafael Mariano Grossi, director general of the IAES, said: “We are trying to finetune the analysis on Kangson. In the beginning we were a bit more prudent, but with further analysis we can see that this is a relevant place where activity is taking place.”
Meanwhile, satellite images captured in May suggested that North Korea was building a new ballistic missile factory at Sil-li, close to Pyongyang’s airport.
