All indicates that North Korea is progressing in the development of its nuclear program. This was stated by the head of the International atomic energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano, reports the UN news Center.
“We conduct inspection in 181 countries, we send inspectors around the world to ensure that States are not engaged in the secret development of nuclear weapons. We use advanced technology that allows us to detect even the smallest particles of nuclear material,” said Amano.
He expressed serious concern over the DPRK’s nuclear programme, Recalling that last year the country has conducted two nuclear tests. Besides, Pyongyang continues missile launches and makes threats against other countries.
“Without such direct access, the IAEA could not assess the real state of the nuclear facilities of North Korea, to find out what is happening there. However, all points to the promotion of the nuclear program of North Korea”, – said the head again, Amano.
On 26 April Admiral Harry Harris has told Congress that the U.S. may need to strengthen its missile defence system, especially in the Hawaiian Islands, given the growing threat from North Korea.
