The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed that its Board of Governors will meet next week to discuss the situation in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

The meeting on 12 February comes after the Board met to discuss the DPRK on 6 January, adopting a resolution calling on Pyongyang to cooperate with international safeguards and to readmit inspectors.

IAEA Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei, who briefed the Board during that January meeting, said afterwards, "I hope the DPRK will seize this opportunity to come into compliance. I hope [it] will understand that compliance, and not defiance, is the way towards a solution to this issue."
