Burma: A Nuclear Wannabe

Today, David Albright and Paul Brannan of the Ploughshares-funded Institute for Science and International Security released a report on the nuclear intentions of Burma’s secretive military dictatorship. Burma is cooperating with North Korea on possible nuclear procurements and appears to be misleading overseas suppliers in order to obtain top-of-the-line equipment. Although evidence does not exist to make a compelling case that Burma is building secret nuclear reactors or fuel cycle facilities, as has been reported, the information does warrant governments and companies taking extreme caution in any dealings with Burma, says the report.
