Bush to decide on fate of KEDO project

29 January 2001

President Clinton decided, that he would not make any decisions on a new authorisation for nuclear technology transfers to North Korea. This decision now rests in the hands of president Bush.

A current authorisation, issued in 1996, expires on 1 May. Discussions are being held on the draft of a new authorisation. However, a number of organisations in Washington have been highly critical of the KEDO project, and it is believed that Bush may take their advice.
