North Korea Has Increased Nuclear Fuel Production: Report

U.S. intelligence agencies believe that North Korea has increased nuclear fuel production at multiple sites in recent months, NBC News reports. Officials, citing the intelligence assessment, told the network that the country has been stepping up its production of enriched uranium, and there was “no evidence” of their stockpiles decreasing. Agencies also concluded that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may “try to hide those facilities” from the U.S. as the country tries to “extract every concession it can” during talks. The conclusions of the intelligence agency seem to counter the president’s position, especially a recent tweet that claimed there was “no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.”
