TOKYO ? A United States special envoy said yesterday that any move by North Korea to restart a nuclear reactor would be a very serious matter and violate United Nations Security Council resolutions.
A U.S. research institute said Wednesday that a recent satellite image appears to show that North Korea is restarting its plutonium reactor at the Yongbyon nuclear facility, which was shuttered in 2007 under the terms of a six-nation disarmament agreement.
The U.S. special envoy for North Korea, Glyn Davies, told reporters in Tokyo on Thursday that if the report were true, it would be a violation of North Koreas past commitments.
This would be a very serious matter - we think a misstep on the part of North Korea - because, of course, it would violate a series of UN Security Council resolutions, Davies said after meeting with his Japanese counterpart Junichi Ihara.
It flies in the face of North Koreas own commitments and promises theyve made over the years, he said. So this would be a step that we would regard very seriously.
North Korea threatened in April to restart the reactor but has since toned down its inflammatory rhetoric and stepped up diplomacy with its rival, South Korea.

Oh, crap here we go again another “red line”........
Maybe, if we ask real nice, we can get Putin to have a word with them.
Quick, move those missiles we were going to use against Syria. Oh, and call Putin to see if he can bail us out here, too.
I see a bright red line in my crystal ball.
Kim, “You genius, you shrink troops too?”
Oh happy day, more staged photos of lil Kim pretending he’s inspecting and actually involved with his military when he’d rather play video games. I’ll ay bets his advisor said, “listen kid, you’re looking like a wienie to the rest of the world because you’re not nearly as much of a tyrant as your father. Now put on your shoes and socks, I’ll grab a photographer and drive you around to our weapon stockpiles and take pictures of you holding weapons so you’ll look a little tougher. Oh and try to get your Dad’s scowl down. Look mean. Yeah that’s it.”. Click, click...click, click...
“Kimmy, don’t you dare push that restart button”
“NO, Gunna push it”
“I’m tellin’ ya’ get back here or you are in big trouble”
“Don’t...don’t do it...OK BUDDY, NOW YOU GOT ME REALLY, REALLY MAD...”
Putin will decided what they do and don’t do, China will back him up.
My guess is Putin already gave them the go ahead.
Putin is an evil communist, Obama is Putin’s evil, mini-me, wannabe.
