North Korea Nuclear Reactor To Be Restarted, UN Says ‘Threats Are Not A Game’

A North Korea nuclear reactor will be restarted if the North Korean regime of Kim Jong-Un has their way.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, North Korea declared a state of war against South Korea last week. North Korea’s official statement also promised nuclear war against the United States.

F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets were sent to South Korea as part of ongoing military exercises with South Korea that occur every year. These F-22 stealth fighters in Korea would join the B-52 bombers and B-2 stealth bombers that were already sent to South Korea. The USS Fitzgerald, a destroyer capable of intercepting missiles, is also steaming up the coast line of North Korea.

North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) announced Tuesday that Kim Jong-Un intends to “readjust and restart all the nuclear facilities” at its main nuclear complex, in Yongbyon. The North Korean nuclear reactor was previously “mothballed and disabled” based upon October 2007 talks between North Korea, the United States, and four other nations.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was “deeply troubled” by the news that North Korea’s nuclear reactors would be restarted:

“The current crisis has already gone too far. Nuclear threats are not a game. Aggressive rhetoric and military posturing only result in counter-actions, and fuel fear and instability. Things must begin to calm down, as this situation, made worse by the lack of communication, could lead down a path that nobody should want to follow.”

What do you think about the North Korean nuclear reactor being restarted?
