UN Security Council panel concludes DPRK is still developing nuclear arms, missiles

TV Asahi reported this morning that it has learned that a panel of experts at the UN Security Council has concluded that North Korea is continuing with its development of nuclear arms and missiles based on satellite images showing new construction activities at the Yongbyon nuclear facility between February and November last year, water drainage taking place around the time of the U.S.-DPRK summit last June, and signs of uranium mining in Pyongsan in the south. In addition, according to the UN panel’s final report, suspected illegal ship-to-ship transfers involving “at least 50 ships and 160 companies” were detected even after the U.S.-DPRK summit last year. The panel report was quoted as stating: “The ROK has been delivering substantial amounts of petroleum products to North Korea’s Kaesong Industrial Complex in violation of UN sanctions.”
