Nuclear Waste Dump[edit]

The North Korean Cental Government and Taipower are in negoiations about shipping nuclear waste to Pyongsan.[1][2] The deal was "worth US$75.66 million envisaged shipping 60,000 barrels of nuclear waste, and a further 14,000 barrels in the second stage, with a total value of $150 million and that the North Koreans were after the deal as a source of foreign exchange" but has run into difficulty when Taipower could not get an "export permit for the waste from the Taiwanese Atomic Energy Council".[1][2] According to Huang Tien-huang, a Taipower official, North Korea blocked Taipower from viewing the processing site at Phyongsan.[2] Due to several issues, the final contract was not signed. However, North Korea (through its attorney, Tsai Hui-ling) is suing Taipower for breach of contract.[1][2][3]
