N Korea nuclear seals 'removed'


news.bbc.co.uk

Seals that prevented North Korea from using its main nuclear plant at Yongbyon have been removed, the UN's atomic watchdog says.

North Korean officials have also said that UN inspectors will have no further access to the Yongbyon plant.

The removal of the seals comes amid a dispute over an international disarmament-for-aid deal.

UN Inspectors being denied further access.

Hopefully, this is just a gesture with no intention behind it.

How shocking What else is new? Does anyone really expect them NOT to attempt to produce nuclear weapons?

This is especially dangerous now that we dont even know who is in charge with Kim dead/deathly ill.

I imagine that its a response to the stalemate over Iran's nuclear programme - N.Korea probably realises that the benefits from nuclear energy and / or weaponry outweigh any UN sanctions.

Where there is a gesture, there is rarely intent...

Intent usually comes without a gesture.

For what would be the point of telling your enemy you're sneaking up on them?


Rest assured... a destructive intent wouldn't be announced.
Meaning... N Korea has no intent to use nuclear weapons.


My take on it is N Korea is just proving they don't need anyone's permission to build nuclear technology... considering the rest of the world has it, and repeatedly threatens to use it... North Korea is just covering their bases.

They aren't announcing it, intelligence is pointing it out
. I think every country has a right to have nuclear power, I don't think that extends to Nuclear weapons though, I wish no country had such devastating weapons....but frankly, the less the better
