N. Korea continues nuclear build-up despite UNSC - Grossi

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi stated on Monday, at the 66th IAEA General Conference, that North Korea continues to develop its nuclear weapons program, despite the United Nations Security Council's sanction resolutions.

"We must prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons and make sure that this good - nuclear energy for peace and development - is not turned into a tool of destruction and suffering," Grossi underscored, noting that North Korea's actions are in violation of the adopted provisions.

Earlier, North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un emphasized that the country will never give up its nuclear weapons. What is more, the country recently fired an unspecified ballistic missile toward the east coast.
