Country Report
Reports in July suggested that North Korea had finished reprocessing its spent nuclear fuel, the final step in the creation of weapons-grade plutonium. The situation has become even more precarious since Japan went against the idea last year of providing North Korea with a large financial transfer in return for Pyongyang cooling. Industrial production increased 12% last year and nothing is fundamentally wrong with the economy, says North Korea's government.
