북한, 영변 핵시설에 IAEA 감시단 접근 금지


북한이 영변 핵시설을 감시하고 있는 국제원자력기구, IAEA 요원들의 접근을 금지했다고 스위스 제네바에 주재하고 있는 외교관들이 밝혔습니다.

이들 외교관은 국제원자력기구가 영변 핵시설에 더 이상 접근할 수 없음을 북한측으로부터 통고 받았다고 전했습니다.

북한은 지난달 영변 재처리시설을 재가동하겠다고 발표한 뒤, 국제원자력기구 요원들이 재처리시설에 접근하지 못하도록 한 바 있습니다.

Diplomats in Geneva say North Korea has banned United Nations monitors from its main Yongbyon nuclear complex.

The diplomats say North Korea told the International Atomic Energy Agency that it would no longer have access to Yongbyon.

Today's decision expands the area that IAEA inspectors are no longer allowed to monitor.

Last month, North Korea barred IAEA personnel from parts of the complex after it announced it was restarting its weapons-producing nuclear program.

In August, Pyongyang halted its disablement of the plant after the United States refused to remove it from a blacklist of states that sponsor terrorism.

The U.S. says it will remove the North from the list once it agrees to a program to verify its declared nuclear activities.
