U.S. experts say that North Korea, despite all bans, has launched the plutonium reactor again. According to the US-Korean Institute, recently taken satellite pictures show the white steam rising from the building with turbines and generators at Yongbyon.
Pyongyang previously announced its intention to renew the program for the production of weapons-grade plutonium, which was suspended in accordance with the agreement signed with the United States in 2007.
Presumably, in one year, the reactor can produce enough plutonium for a nuclear bomb. According to former U.S. State Department spokesman Joel Wit, a restart of the reactor indicates that Pyongyang continues to develop clandestine nuclear-tipped missiles.
