Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) — North Korea has assembled enough “weaponized” plutonium to construct between four and six nuclear bombs, the New York Times reported, citing American scholar Selig Harrison.

Harrison, after a meeting with North Korean officials in the capital Pyongyang, said the definition of “weaponized” was unclear although it implied construction of nuclear arms, the newspaper said, citing comments made by Harrison at a news conference yesterday in Beijing.

Harrison is the director of the Asia program at the Center for International Policy and has traveled to North Korea several times to meet senior officials, the report said.
