North Korea may have halted its Nuclear Reactor, according to satellite photos!

North Korea could have halted the operations of its only atomic reactor, according to a website specialized in full expectation ahead of the summits in which leader Kim Jong-un will discuss the possible denuclearization of his regime.

According to satellite imagery taken on March 30 and analyzed by the North Korean specialist portal 38north on Tuesday, the generators of the 5-megawatt experimental reactor at the Yongbyon Nuclear Research Center (80 kilometers north of Pyongyang) do not appear to show any activity.

This could indicate that the fission unit has been deactivated, which the regime has always defended that serves to generate electricity exclusively, despite the well-founded suspicions of the international community that it is also used to produce plutonium that is then reprocessed for use in nuclear weapons.

In addition to this, the website, linked to the American Johns Hopkins University, indicates that "there is no evidence that reprocessing of plutonium is being carried out in the Radiochemical Laboratory" in Yongbyon.

However, 38north's analysis urges prudence by arguing that the situation in Yongbyon  "should be closely monitored in the future " and indicating that the images also show nearby excavations that could be destined for the reactor to operate  " With greater continuity and security  "in the future.

The analysis comes at a time of expectation in the face of the two summits convened between the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un, and the presidents of South Korea and the U.S., Moon Jae-in and Donald Trump, who could assume a point and apart in the conflict generated by the NUC program Lear North Korean.

The meeting with Moon on April 27 will be the first inter-Korean summit since 2007, while that of May-still no date or place-will mark the first time in history that the leaders of North Korea and the United States meet after seven decades of confrontation in the wake of the 1950-53 Korean War.
