Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) — Intelligence officials are growing more concerned that North Korea, deadlocked in negotiations to end its nuclear arms program, is secretly enriching uranium, U.S. National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said today.

Talks failed to persuade the North Korean regime to support procedures that would verify the extent of its plutonium-based nuclear work after the communist nation last month refused to allow the taking of soil and atomic waste samples. China, South Korea, Japan and Russia are working with the U.S. on the diplomacy.

“North Korea will test the new administration by once again trying to split the six parties and renegotiate the deal,” Hadley told an audience in Washington at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a public-policy group.
