North Korea prepares nuclear, missile test sites for international inspections: Report

South Korea’s spy agency, National Intelligence Service disclosed that North Korea has started preparing its nuclear and missile test sites for international inspections, the Yonhap news agency said Wednesday while citing a South Korean lawmaker.

Democratic Party’s Kim Min-ki told reporters that intelligence officials had observed what they believed to be preparations for possible inspections at Punggye-ri nuclear test site and the Sohae Satellite launching ground.

The spy agency observed North Koreans “conducting preparation and intelligence activities that seem to be in preparation for foreign inspectors’ visit,” the lawmaker said, but no major movements were noted at Yongbyon, which is the North’s main nuclear complex.
