IAEA governing board set to hear report on nuclear safeguards in DPR of Korea

3 January 2003

The governing board of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is set to take up the issue of nuclear safeguards in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) next week.

The 35-member council will meet on Monday to hear a report from the Agency’s Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei, who recently spoke about the next steps after Pyongyang last month removed IAEA safety seals and surveillance equipment at the DPRK’s nuclear facilities at Nyongbyong.

A press briefing is planned to follow the board’s meeting at IAEA headquarters in Vienna.
