N. Korea nuclear reactor running at low levels or not at all: 38 North   38노스 &q


North Korea appears to be experiencing some
difficulties operating its main nuclear reactor at its Yongbyon nuclear complex.
The assessment was made by the North Korea-analysis website ′38 North′, after analyzing
satellite imagery from late last month,…. which showed no steam or hot water discharges
suggesting the five-megawatt reactor in not in operation.
It said the reactor, which has operated on-and-off since mid-2014, was now
either running at low levels or not at all,… although the exact reason remains unclear.
The U.S. think tank also said the North has been constructing a larger-scale light water
nuclear reactor at the complex. Experts believe once completed, it could
give Pyongyang enough plutonium to make about five to six nuclear bombs a year.
