N Korea forces out IAEA inspectors
Taking a sturdy stand on the United Nations’ condemnation to the 5th April long-range rocket launch, North Korea on Tuesday asked the UN nuclear inspectors to leave the nation immediately; this might provoke the world to impose strong sanction on the East Asian country.
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has also accused the UN of double standards and decided to restart its nuclear activities soon.
IAEA Spokesperson Marc Vidricaire in response to the recent development said: "North Korea has requested the removal of all containment and surveillance equipments, following which, IAEA inspectors will no longer be provided access to the facility. The inspectors have also been asked to leave the DPRK at the earliest possible time.”
“The DPRK also informed the IAEA that it has decided to reactivate all facilities and go ahead with the reprocessing of spent fuel," added the IAEA media statement.
UN Security Council condemned the missile tests by N. Korea, though the later claimed the rocket carried only a satellite. Soon after the April 5 launch, UN member countries, including Japan, asked the Council to issue a strong statement and tighten sanctions against Pyongyang.
The Security Council saw the rocket launch a contravention of resolution 1718, which demanded the country that “not to conduct any further nuclear test or launch a ballistic missile”, following its claims to have conducted a nuclear test in October 2006.
Following Security Council’s unanimous condemnation, North Korea has declared that it would pull out from the six-party talks and restart their nuclear reactors.
