Feb 21, 2013

Materials obtained and disseminated by the North Korea International Documentation Project on the origins of the North Korean nuclear program were referred to in an article by Aidan Foster-Carter in the Financial Times.

Foster-Carter, Honorary Senior Research Fellow in Sociology and Modern Korea, Leeds University, wrote that "Documents from Pyongyang's erstwhile communist allies - none of whom liked or trusted Kim - collated by the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington reveal that, as early as the 1960s, North Korea evinced a keen interest in nuclear technologies."
