(LEAD) N. Korea says will restart its 5 megawatt graphite moderated reactor
SEOUL, April 2 (Yonhap) -- North Korea on Tuesday said it plans to restart its 5 megawatt nuclear reactor that was shut down under an agreement reached at the six-party talks in 2007, a move that will allow the North to extract plutonium from spent fuel rods.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), citing a spokesman for the General Department of Atomic Energy, said measures will be taken to refurbish the graphite moderated reactor in Yongbyon so operations can resume.
