In two moves that many see as a challenge to international pressure to freeze its nuclear operations and development program, North Korea has expelled inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency who were monitoring its nuclear facilities under supposed moratorium as well as resumed reprocessing spent fuel rods at its nuclear facilities in Yongbyun. In response, South Korea’s National Security Council published an emergency warning for Pyongyang to cease operation of its nuclear facilities and to respect the moratorium stipulated in the 1994 Geneva Agreed Framework.
