IAEA members stress agency's essential role in North Korea
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 04 - 10 - 2008


Members of the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) issued a resolution Saturday stressing that the nuclear
organization should play a key role in North Korea, reported dpa.
The resolution adopted at the IAEA general conference in Vienna
said the agency should have an "essential verification role" in North
Korea, a notion opposed by Pyongyang, according to Western diplomats.
Diplomats said the reclusive nation would prefer inspections by
the United States or other nuclear weapons countries involved in the
political 6-party talks on North Korea, rather than the involvement
of an international technical organization.
Chief US negotiator Christopher Hill on Friday left Pyongyang
after talks over the contentious question of how inspectors can
verify the North Korean nuclear programme.
Washington said it would not remove North Korea from its list of
state sponsors of terrorism until Pyongyang agreed to verification
procedures, allowing checks of claims made by Pyongyang about its
nuclear programme.
North Korea accused the US of failing to keep its end of the
bargain and last week removed IAEA seals and cameras at its nuclear
facilities in order to restart the reprocessing of plutonium.
The IAEA resolution noted "with concern the recent halt in
disablement work" at North Korea's nuclear complex in Yongbyon, as
well as Pyongyang's recent announcement on reprocessing.
At the general conference, Israel alleged in a statement that
North Korea had "long become a source of dangerous proliferation of
weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles in the Middle East
region."
