Pyongyang : A second team of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arrived in the North Korean capital Saturday to continue the inspection on nuclear facilities at Yongbyon.
Ryszard Zarucki, head of the six-member IAEA team, said on arrival that they would continue monitoring and verification at Yongbyon, 90 km north of Pyongyang.
Zarucki also said they would exchange views with the first IAEA team at Pyongyang for a couple of days before the team took over part of the work. Then, they would go to Yongbyon directly.
In mid-July, North Korea said it had shut down its Yongbyon nuclear facilities after it had received the first shipment of heavy oil from South Korea to be used as fuel for its power plants. The shutdown had been confirmed by the IAEA later.
The first IAEA team was dispatched to North Korea earlier this month and would leave Tuesday.
