Information from GDR military attaché Lt. Col. Schafer


Last December a DPRK delegation visited the GDR. After visiting an optical factory and the nuclear reactor, it [the DPRK] proposed [the following]:


1) Construction of an optical factory in the DPRK or sale of equipment, offering most of the payment in foreign currency. According to Lt. Col. Schafer, the GDR refused.


2) They also proposed construction of a nuclear reactor in the DPRK. The GDR was to have replied that they should turn to the USSR which owns the license of the GDR reactor.


When he heard my remark that I heard that the USSR is building a reactor in the DPRK, he replied that he is informing me about what he was informed about by his superiors.
