IAEA chief says nuclear inspections in DPRK “indispensable”

NHK aired an interview with IAEA Director General Amano regarding the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. He reportedly underscored the necessity of inspections of DPRK nuclear facilities by the international nuclear watchdog. He was quoted as saying: “Complete and irreversible denuclearization is a stated goal in UN Security Council resolutions…. [Pyongyang’s] commitment to denuclearize would be meaningless without establishing a robust inspection regime.” The IAEA leader stressed that such monitoring should be done by IAEA experts, rather than those from the U.S. or other nations, adding that his organization is prepared to send inspectors to North Korea at any time.
