U.S. authorities accuse the group of Chinese Hubei Sanjiang having provided North Korea spears frames for mobile missiles, violating UN sanctions against Pyongyang, said the spokesman for the White House, Jay Carney , quoted by the Western media.
North Korea has set April 15, during the military parade to mark the 100th anniversary of Kim Il-sung, a new missile carried on a vehicle-type TEL.
North Korea declared itself a nuclear power in 2005 and conducted a series of tests that led the UN to impose sanctions against Pyongyang. The country’s cooperation with IAEA was discontinued in 2009.
In November 2010, Pyongyang has confirmed the expansion of its nuclear program, revealing the existence of thousands of centrifuges at the uranium enrichment facility at Yongbyon. The IAEA inspectors had inspected the plant in Yongbyon until April 2009 before being removed from the country following the breakdown of cooperation between North Korea and the Agency.
