DPRK regrants IAEA inspectors access to its nuclear facilities
Adjust font size:

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) restored access for international inspectors to its Yongbyon nuclear facilities for further verification, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) spokesperson Melissa Fleming confirmed on Monday.

Fleming said in a statement released by IAEA on Monday that the DPRK granted IAEA inspectors access to the 5 Megawatt Experimental Nuclear Power Plant, the Nuclear Fuel Fabrication Plant and the reprocessing facility at Yongbyon for verification and monitoring.

It was reported that the United States and DPRK reached a compromise for their nuclear conflict last weekend. The U.S. agreed to remove DPRK from a sponsors-of-terrorism blacklist while DPRK promised to resume the disablement work of its nuclear facilities.

Yongbyon's nuclear facilities were shut down in July last year under an aid-for-disarmament deal agreed by the Six Parties -- DPRK, South Korea, China, the U.S., Japan and Russia. However, DPRK recently vowed to restart the Yongbyon nuclear reactors and denied IAEA inspectors' access to the nuclear facilities because the U.S. refused to remove it from the terrorism blacklist as promised.
