Director of Atomic Energy Institute of DPRK on Its Nuclear Activities
Director of the Atomic Energy Institute of the DPRK gave the following
answer to a question put by KCNA on September 15 as regards the public
opinion being built up over the DPRK’s nuclear activities:
late, institutions specializing in nuclear activities and media of the
Western world including the US have become vociferous about the nuclear
activities in the DPRK, saying satellite data made them capture fresh
activity in a nuclear establishment in Nyongbyon and they are concerned
As known by the world, the DPRK’s access to the nuclear weapons is an outcome of the US hostile policy towards it.
speaking, the DPRK took the measure for self-defense in the face of the
US extreme hostile policy and nuclear threats towards it.
was clarified by a spokesman for the then General Atomic Energy Agency
of the DPRK in April 2013, all the nuclear facilities in Nyongbyon
including the uranium enrichment plant and 5 MW graphite-moderated
reactor were rearranged, changed or readjusted and they started normal
operation, pursuant to the line of simultaneously pushing forward the
economic construction and the building of a nuclear force advanced at
the historic plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers’
Party of Korea.
the meantime, the US anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK that
forced it to have access to the nuclear weapons has remained utterly
unchanged and, instead, it has become all the more undisguised and
vicious with the adoption of means openly seeking the downfall of the
latter’s social system.
technicians and workers in the field of atomic energy of the DPRK have
made innovations day by day in their research and production to
guarantee the reliability of the nuclear deterrent in every way by
steadily improving the levels of nuclear weapons with various missions
in quality and quantity as required by the prevailing situation.
the US and other hostile forces persistently seek their reckless
hostile policy towards the DPRK and behave mischievously, the DPRK is
fully ready to cope with them with nuclear weapons any time.
