Diplomats say China blocks North Korea nuke report

February 24, 2011

Forbes, Feb 23 2011: Security Council diplomats say China is blocking the release of a report by an expert panel disclosing a new and highly sophisticated uranium enrichment plant in North Korea.

The council discussed the report behind closed doors Wednesday during a briefing by the head of the committee monitoring sanctions against the North aimed at reining in its nuclear program.

Diplomats speaking on condition of anonymity because the meeting was private said many council members pushed for publication of the report arguing that all 192 U.N. member states should have access to its findings and recommendations to improve compliance with the sanctions.

American scientist Siegfried Hecker said in November that he was taken to the uranium enrichment facility during a trip to the North.
