China Told U.S. of Underwater Nuclear Plant in N.Korea

China Told U.S. of Underwater Nuclear Plant in N.Korea

China obtained information in 2008 that North Korea has a secret underwater nuclear facility in its coastal waters, leaked U.S. diplomatic cables show.

According to a Sept. 26, 2008 cable from the U.S. Consulate in Shanghai disclosed by WikiLeaks, a North Korea expert in Shanghai announced this in a meeting about the six-party nuclear talks with Christopher Beede, the political and economic chief at the consulate.

The expert said the nuclear declaration the North submitted to China, the chair of the six-party talks, in May the same year was "incomplete" and Beijing had information that the North had a secret underwater nuclear facility. "For this reason, a debate has emerged within the Chinese leadership" over the six-party talks, he added.

The source said some Chinese leaders believed that "continued momentum in the six-party talks is critical to their success" and that "Washington must adopt a more flexible attitude." Others took the "incomplete nuclear declaration as evidence that the regime in Pyongyang is truly 'a ticking time bomb'" and regarded "Washington's tough stance on verification as a potential opportunity" to control the North.

But a senior South Korean Foreign Ministry official said on Thursday said the cable "is not true. If it were true, would participating nations of the six-party talks have kept quiet?"

They always spin this kind of development as a reason for more ‘engagement.’ They insist that any bad thing NK does is because we lack enthusiasm for more talk. LOL.

"China Told U.S. of Underwater Nuclear Plant in N.Korea"

At first glance, I thought it said "underwear nuclear plant."

I was terrified.

this reminds me of the current philosphy in trying to make a 2 year old understand the logic of the parent’s position.... right over the 2 year old’s head... what they get out of it is “well, I got away with that”....

Assuming this is accurate and the water it's placed in is the ocean, doesn't it have the potential to contaminate hundreds of square miles of ocean and waterways?

I'm by no means an expert, but it seems that the fallout if that thing ruptures or something would be incalculable.

The Ark In Space was in earth orbit and for some reason no one could see it until a radar jammer was turned off.

The United States operates dozens of underwater nuclear power plants.

These plants are fully mobile and also carry nuclear missiles.

Call Greenpeace.

I am sure they will send the “Rainbow Warrior” and a bunch of stoned hippies to confront the Norks. No?
