IAEA Director General believes the real threat from North Korea
BERLIN, may 4. /Offset. TASS Anton Dolgunov/. The threat from North Korea in the context of its nuclear program, and the international community concerned about this. This was stated by Director General of the International atomic energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano in an interview with German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung.
“They (threats — approx. TASS) real. All the evidence says that North Korea is taking steps forward (in the atomic sphere approx. TASS), and it concerns us. This raises security issues that are relevant not only for this region,” he said. “We have reason to believe that nuclear program develops exactly as they say in North Korea,” — said General Director of IAEA.
The situation on the Korean Peninsula flared up again at the beginning of last year, when Pyongyang carried out a nuclear test and later launched a ballistic missile artificial satellite of the Earth. In September 2016, the DPRK conducted another nuclear test, and during the year carried out more than 20 missile launches.
