The incmoplete sentence "Years before DPRK proliferated rocket technologies to Pakistan, Iran etc." appeared in this article which seemed to have no relation to the surrounding sentences. It has been removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:40, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Under the terms of UN Security Council Resolution 2087 (full text at http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2013/sc10891.doc.htm), it is now illegal for top officials of the Korean Committee of Space Agency to travel abroad to negotiate agreements with other countries to license-build the Unha or any other North Korean space rockets. Nevertheless, North Korea has vehemently denounced UNSC Resolution 2087 as yet another flagrant violation of its right to a peaceful space program, so it's possible that members of the KCST may defy the resolution by signing an agreement with Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela, Mexico, or South Africa to build the Unha under license in those countries. The US could have just asked North Korea to ensure the international community that its space program will not lead to the development of an ICBM, but the fact that they missed this option is disappointment for me. Never before in the history of space travel have space scientists of a particular country been treated as international criminals abroad (when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, UN never dared brand Sputnik's designers as international criminals). How would Cuba like it if it launched a rocket into space and the feat was condemned by the US? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:34, 7 February 2013 (UTC)Vahe Demirjian
