North Korea: The Foundations for Military Strength -- Update 1995
December 1995

Nuclear Agreed Framework

Under the terms of the 21 October 1994 Agreed Framework, North Korea will be provided with alternative energy in the form of heavy oil for heating and electricity production. These heavy oil supplies are to compensate for the loss of electricity production by the 5-MW generator at the Yongbyon nuclear complex and for abandoning construction of the 50-MW nuclear reactor at Yongbyon and the 200-MW nuclear reactor at Taechon. Deliveries of heavy fuel oil began on 17 January 1995 and will reach a rate of 500,000 tons annually until completion of first light water reactor.
