North Korea denied supplying war equipment or pilots to its ally Syria to aid the Assad regime. Various foreign media reports over the past few months have alleged that North Korea has sent helicopter pilots and military advisers as well as gas masks and small arms to the war-torn country.
North Korea said it had stepped up attack readiness and warned of "disastrous consequences" after the US moved a group of ships into a South Korean port in a routine exercise. South Korean intelligence confirmed that North Korea has restarted its Yongbyon nuclear reactor to produce both plutonium and enriched uranium.
The Yongbyon nuclear complex, which was shut down in 2007, appears to have started up again, according to a US research institute. In the past, North Korea has used the reactor to produce enough plutonium for as many as 12 atomic bombs.
A recent report indicates that the Yongbyon nuclear reactor appears to be operating or nearly ready. Officials had announced their intention to restart the reactor in April. China also acknowledged the reports and said it was committed to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
