This web-based report describes the current status (as of October 2006) of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) nuclear weapons program after its first test of a nuclear bomb. The author, a former director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, visited the DPRK in November 2006 as a member of a delegation from the United States. The report addresses the nuclear test, plutonium production at Yongbyon, and the DPRK’s stockpile of nuclear weapons. It reflects discussions between members of the delegation and government officials of the DPRK.
