BRUSSELS — North Korea is continuing to develop its nuclear program, the United Nations’ atomic agency said in an annual report this week, despite an agreement reached in June between Washington and Pyongyang to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

In the report, the International Atomic Energy Agency said that North Korea has continued to advance some of its nuclear facilities and has shown no sign of shutting down critical parts of its nuclear infrastructure.

“The continuation and further development of the DPRK’s nuclear program and related statements by the DPRK are a cause for grave concerns,” the report said.

President Donald Trump has said his June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ended the threat from North Korea, which hasn’t conducted a missile or bomb test in months.

An expanded version of this report appears on WSJ.com.
