North Korea Introduces Law Protecting Nuclear Safety
North Korea reportedly adopted a law last year that aims to ensure the safety of the country's nuclear facilities.
The Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency reported Thursday that the standing committee of the Supreme People's Assembly. adopted the Nuclear Waste Disposal Act last August.
The act covers rules regarding the safe management of radioactive materials and nuclear facilities, radioactive waste disposal, and the monitoring of radiation levels.
The move seems to be in response to growing international concerns over North Korea's reactors.
Under the law, the country must also assess the potential harm the reactors may have on the environment before initiating their construction.
