Increased activity at North Korean nuclear site

Renewed activity at North Korean nuclear site sparks fears, UNNERVING satellite images of a North Korean nuclear site suggest that Kim Jong-un may be expanding his nuclear program. Eric Talmadge, news.com.au  APMARCH 29, 2018

INCREASED activity at a North Korean nuclear site has once again caught the attention of analysts and renewed concerns about the complexities of denuclearisation talks.

The satallite imagery, taken last month, were released as United States President Donald Trump prepares for a summit with Kim Jong-un in the coming weeks.

Yesterday, Xinhua News revealed that during a secret visit to China, Mr Kim had told Chinese President Xi Jinping that he was ready for talks with the US about nuclear weapons, promising to give up his nuclear arsenal.

But observers believe these images suggest the North has begun preliminary testing of an experimental light water reactor and possibly brought another reactor online at its Yongbyon Nuclear Research Centre.

Both could be used to produce the fissile materials needed for nuclear bombs.

The findings come at a particularly sensitive time.

Trump and Kim are planning to meet by May, according to officials, and denuclearisation will likely be the biggest topic on their agenda if they do meet………..http://www.news.com.au/world/asia/renewed-activity-at-north-korean-nuclear-site-sparks-fears/news-story/d0f03838c7d7460b5ccda2288975d54b
