Syria built an atomic reactor at al-Kibar with technical help from North Korea. The reactor is believed to be a nearly exact copy of a reactor North Korea uses to make plutonium and other isotopes for use in its atomic weapons program.
The massive explosion which occurred on 22 April 2004 in the train yard at the North Korean port of Namp’o killed many hundreds of people (no information about casualties has ever been released by NK), among whom were many Syrian nuclear workers. There is considerable evidence that weapons-grade plutonium was being transported on the train, and was destined for Syria.
One can assume that Syria paid a great deal of money to NK for their nuclear expertise and other services.
