Myanmar’s President Thein Sein will soon be ready to sign the International Atomic Energy Agency's "additional protocol", which grants the UN nuclear agency right of access the country’s nuclear facilities.

In November 2010 the UN said that North Korea continued exporting nuclear technology and missiles to Myanmar, Iran and Syria. During her last year’s visit to Yangon Myanmar US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged the country’s leaders to sever ties with Pyongyang. President Thein Sein then denied buying nuclear weapons from North Korea.
