According to the networks, the U.S. paper cited the IAEA’s annual report on North Korea’s nuclear activities, which said: “Since early July, there have been indications, including the discharge of cooling water, consistent with the operation of the reactor.” TV Asahi added that the Yongbyon reactor appeared to have been inactive from December 2018 until the beginning of July 2021.
