Increased activity is seen at North Korea’s main nuclear facility in Yongbyon, which could confirm the completion of construction and commissioning of an experimental light-water reactor, Reuters reported, citing satellite data from the Washington think tank.
According to satellite imagery, the 5 MW reactor at Yongbyon continues to operate, with an auxiliary facility under construction around it. The photo shows water discharges that can be associated with checking cooling systems.
According to the center, a uranium enrichment facility was built near the reactor, writes RBC.

The Yongbyon reactor began to be built in the 1960s after the conclusion of agreements with the USSR on nuclear cooperation.
