PUST trains N.Korean missile, nuclear, hacking experts: newspaper

S.Korean government is 'taking a close look' at the information from unnamed sources

A conservative South Korean newspaper on Tuesday accused the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) of contributing to North Korea’s nuclear and missile development personnel, and Seoul’s Foreign Ministry said it is “taking a close look" at the news.

The Munhwa Ilbo also cited anonymous U.S. government sources which claimed the university could be added to Washington's sanctions list, as it seems to have a core role in sustaining Pyongyang’s Byungjin policy – the parallel development of the economy and nuclear power.
