this is quite interesting as they have promised several times not to have an aggresive missile development system coupled with a nuclear development program.

how does this impact their stance in the global community as well as their power in the asian theatre?

North Korea preparing to restart nuclear facility


PANMUNJOM, Korea (AP) — A North Korean diplomat says the communist regime is undertaking "thorough preparations" to restart its nuclear reactor in Yongbyon.

Hyun Hak Bong has told reporters at the border Friday that North Korea stopped disabling the Yongbyon complex as previously agreed because the U.S. has not kept its end of a disarmament-for-aid deal.

He says "we are making thorough preparations to restart" the facility, but did not say when it would be running again.

Hyun spoke before the start of talks at the border village of Panmunjom with South Korean officials on sending energy aid to the impoverished North amid a deadlock in the six-party disarmament talks.
