"Focusing on particular technologies such as enrichment or pyroprocessing should be seen as less important than finding a 'win-win' solution where the two countries can work together to address Seoul's core concerns: short- and medium-term storage for spent fuel, sufficient fuel supplies for South Korea's nuclear fleet, and enhancing South Korea's nuclear export potential," said senior research associate Miles Pomper of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
