Seoul to discuss with partners resumption of plutonium production by Pyongyang

TOKYO, August 18 – South Korea plans to discuss with its partners the resumption of plutonium production by North Korea, South Korea’s Defense Ministry spokesman Moon Sang-gyun said on Thursday.

“If the North really resumes production of plutonium, it violates UN Security Council resolutions. We intend to discuss the current situation with the countries and organizations that are related to this problem,” the official said as quoted by Kyodo news agency.

On Wednesday, Kyodo published the comment from North Korea’s Atomic Energy Research Institute. According to that comment, Pyongyang had resumed reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel from the nuclear reactor in Yongbyon to obtain plutonium and does not intend to stop nuclear testing.

It was noted that Pyongyang for the first time since 2013, when the six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear program were suspended, has officially confirmed resumption of plutonium production.

The situation at the Korean Peninsula worsened after North Korea conducted a nuclear test on January 6 and launched a carrier rocket with an artificial satellite on February 7 violating UN Security Council resolutions.

In response, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution to tighten sanctions against Pyongyang.

North Korea does not recognize this resolution, referring to the fact that the nuclear test was conducted in the interests of self-defense considering the aggressive policy of the US against the country while the carrier rocket was launched for the peaceful space exploration. – TASS
