North Korea Reveals Uranium Enrichment Facility and Light Water Reactor


On November 2-6, KEI President Jack Pritchard and KEI Director Nicole Finneman visited Pyongyang to discuss with North Korean officials the current state of North Korea’s foreign relations and gain a better understanding of the changes that have taken place in North Korea since their last visit in 2009. Their trip not only included extensive meetings with Ambassador Li Gun, Director General of North American Affairs of the DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs and First Vice Minister Kim Gye Gwan, but also an unanticipated visit to the Yongbyon nuclear facilities where the KEI team were the first foreigners to see the beginnings of a light water reactor and evidence of an uranium enrichment program.
