NHK: N. Korea Demanded US for Light-Water Nuclear Power Plant
North Korea's First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan has reportedly demanded a light-water nuclear power plant from the US in return for suspending the North's uranium enrichment program.
Citing an anonymous source, NHK reported on Wednesday, that Kim suggested to his US counterparts at the recent high-level meeting in Geneva, that Washington should build the power plant, at the same time Pyeongyang halts what he referred to as a 'peaceful act of electricity generation.'
And the report said that the head of US delegation Stephen Bosworth is believed to have turned down the proposal.
In the 2005 joint six-party statement, the involved parties had agreed to discuss the light-water reactor issue AFTER the North gives up its nuclear development programs.
