SEOUL -- North Korea's nuclear research facility in Yongbyon remains under development, two weeks after leader Kim Jong Un signed a pledge reaffirming "his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," a U.S.-based North Korean affairs website said on Thursday.
The website, 38 North, reported that infrastructure improvements at the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center are being made at a rapid pace. The site based its report on commercial satellite imagery from last week. It said construction continues on support facilities throughout operational areas of Yongbyon, 100km north of Pyongyang. At the Experimental Light Water Reactor, a new engineering office building appears externally complete, 38 North said.
