And so the plot thickens. Strange bed fellows (all those involved in the NOKO issues) thats for sure.

Cargo on a ship bound for North Korea and intercepted in Japan has been identified as nuclear materials today. The materials were found on the vessel, which had sailed from the Chinese port of Dalian, when it berthed in Tokyo harbor last August. After six months' testing, the Japanese authorities confirmed they were aluminum alloy rods, which are normally used in nuclear centrifuges, of which North Korea has, in the past, claimed to have "thousands."

The rods, which were being stored by a firm in a warehouse in Tokyo, were ordered to be handed over by the Japanese Government, which cited a law from 2010 which allows it to intercept cargo bound for the DPRK which it suspects to be nuclear-related. Last month, North Korea undertook a third successful nuclear test, which its ally China condemned.

It has to be something special as I'm sure they're not just plain aluminium rods

Doesn't make sense. Port of Dalian is 500kms away from NK

Why send something deemed illegal through transit when NK and China shares a 1500 kms border ?

S&F, the plot is thickening. And SK is asking to allow tourists in the North again. Weird.

This reminds me of the false information that was used to implicate Iraq. Because they ordered aluminum tubes of alloy 7075.

Here's the Link:
en.wikipedia.org...

7075 AA tubes are used in a variety of applications. Although it's typically considered an aerospace alloy, it's used for more and more common items. Lots of these tubes are used to make bicycles.
