North Korea has as many as 60 nuclear weapons, warns South Korea

韩国警告称,朝鲜拥有多达60枚核武器



A top South Korean official has told MPs North Korea could have up to 60 nuclear weapons.

韩国一位高级官员告诉国会,朝鲜可能拥有60枚核武器。

In Seoul’s first public comment about the size of the North’s secretive weapons arsenal, unification minister Cho Myoung-gyon told parliament the estimates range from 20 bombs to as many as 60.

韩国统一部长官赵孟坚首次就朝鲜秘密武器库的规模发表公开评论。他对韩国国会说,估计有20枚到60枚核弹。



Stanford University scholars, including nuclear physicist Siegfried Hecker who visited North Korea’s centrifuge facility at Nyongbyon in 2010, wrote earlier this year that North Korea is estimated to have a highly enriched uranium inventory of 250 to 500kgs (550 to 1,100lbs), sufficient for 25 to 30 nuclear devices.

斯坦福大学学者,包括曾于2010年访问了朝鲜位于宁边的离心机设施的核物理学家齐格弗里德.赫克,今年早些时候写道,据估计,朝鲜拥有250至500公斤(550至1100磅)的高浓缩铀库存,足够制造25至30个核装置。

Many foreign experts say North Korea are likely running additional secret uranium-enrichment plants.

许多外国专家说,北韩很可能正在建造更多的秘密铀浓缩工厂。

The North entered talks with the United States and South Korea earlier this year, saying it is willing to negotiate away its advancing nuclear arsenal.

今年早些时候,朝鲜与美国和韩国进行了会谈,表示愿意就其不断发展的核武器进行谈判。

Nuclear diplomacy later stalled due to suspicions over how sincere North Korea is about its disarmament pledge, but US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to visit Pyongyang this month to set up a second summit between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

由于怀疑朝鲜对其裁军承诺的真诚程度,核外交后来陷入停顿,但美国国务卿迈克.庞培将于本月访问平壤,为美国总统唐纳德.特朗普和朝鲜领导人金正恩之间的第二次峰会做准备。

On Tuesday, North Korea said declaring the end of the 1950-53 Korean War “can never be a bargaining chip” for getting the North denuclearised, and said the country “will not particularly hope for it” if the United States does not want the end of war.

周二,朝鲜表示,宣布1950年至1953年的朝鲜战争结束“永远不可能成为”让朝鲜无核化的“谈判筹码”,并表示,朝鲜“不会特别期待”美国是否想要结束战争。
