Apr 05, 2013 National Review Online Posts NPEC Analysis, "Pyongyang Is Not Our Only Nuclear Worry"
This op-ed argues that Pyongyang is not the only nuclear worry in East Asia since Japan is considering opening a plant that can produce eight tons of plutonium a year — enough to make 1,000 to 2,000 nuclear weapons annually, while South Korea also wants to make plutonium-based nuclear fuels from imported U.S. power-reactor assemblies. The U.S. should try to defer as long as possible any decision to start any form of Korean nuclear-fuel-making or to increase Japanese plutonium production.

Apr 04, 2013 Should the U.S. Encourage South Korea and Japan to Make Plutonium-Based Nuclear Fuels?
NPEC held a Capitol Hill event focusing on what U.S. policy should be regarding South Korean and Japanese ambitions to make nuclear fuels from U.S. materials at a time when we are trying to get Iran and North Korea to stop. Speakers included Frank Von Hippel, former Asst. Dir. of the Office of Science and Technology under President Clinton, and William Tobey, former Dep. Administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration under President George W. Bush.

Feb 12, 2013 National Review Online Posts NPEC Analysis, "After North Korea's Test: Slow the Nuclear Dominos"
Rather than support Tokyo’s and Seoul’s cravings to develop nuclear-weapons options, NPEC's executive director argues that the U.S. should explicitly waive the need for Japan and South Korea to secure any licenses to export their nuclear reactors if these two countries agree to a set of additional nonproliferation conditions, and put off recycling any U.S.-origin spent reactor fuel. Additionally, the U.S. should publicly call on China to join the U.S. and Russia in any further nuclear-weapons-reduction effort.
