North Korea's dangerous intentions, expanding uranium enrichment plant

Recent satellite images have shown that North Korea is going to expand a uranium enrichment plant at the Yongbyon nuclear complex. This suggests his intention to increase the production of bomb-making materials. The assessment comes after North Korea recently escalated tensions with its first missile tests in six months amid long-defunct denuclearization talks with the United States.


Jeffrey Lewis of Monterey's Middlebury Institute of International Studies and two other experts said in a report, "The expansion of the enrichment plant indicates that North Korea wants to increase production of weapons-grade uranium at the Yongbyon site by about 25 percent." ' The report said satellite images taken by Maxar show construction activity in the vicinity of the uranium enrichment plant in Yongbyon.


The satellite images were taken in Sept. It shows that North Korea is cutting down trees and preparing the land for construction. In a second image taken on September 14, a wall was erected to enclose the area, the report said. A foundation was worked on and panels were removed from the side of the stud building to provide access to the new enclosed area.


It is to be known that the two ballistic missiles that North Korea tested last Wednesday, were fired for the first time by making the train a launchpad. This has raised concerns all over the world. A few hours later, South Korea also tested an underwater missile from a submarine. With this, the arms race in the Korean peninsula is once again intensifying.
