德国称朝鲜通过驻柏林大使馆购买核设备 Germany says N. Korea Got Nuclear Equipment through Its Berlin Embassy






North Korea has been getting equipment and technology for its nuclear weapons program through its embassy in Berlin, Germany's intelligence chief says.

BfV head Han-Georg Maassen told German public television NDR that German authorities suspect underground markets and shadow buyers got their hands on the parts and the North Koreans procured them in Germany.

He did not say exactly what equipment the North Koreans bought, but said it is likely duel-use technology, meaning it has civilian and military purposes.

The German TV report says the North carried out its activities in Germany in 2016 and 2017, but that a North Korean diplomat tried to buy a monitor used in chemical weapons production as early as 2014.

A North Korean embassy spokesman denies the report, telling CNN it is "simply not true."
