IAEA wants to get in N.Korea again

 February 16, 2018



Japan, IAEA to cooperate on N.Korea




Japan's Foreign Minister and the chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency have agreed to work together to persuade North Korea to accept IAEA inspections.

Taro Kono met with IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano in Vienna, Austria, on Thursday.

Amano described North Korea as a threat to the world. He said the IAEA is ready to dispatch inspectors to the North again if the situation allows.

Kono replied Japan is willing to support the IAEA to prepare for the North's possible dismantling of its nuclear program due to pressure through sanctions.

The IAEA halted inspections in the North in 2009 when its inspectors were forced to leave the country.

Kono and Amano also confirmed the agreement between the 2 sides to enhance measures against terrorism in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

Before the meeting, Kono met with the secretary general of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Thomas Greminger.

They agreed that they cannot tolerate the North's nuclear program and that the international community needs to cooperate to maximize pressure on the country.
