WASHINGTON, Aug. 3 (Yonhap) -- The United States believes North Korea may still consider the use of biological weapons as an option and the communist nation continues to develop its biological research and development capabilities, according to a State Department report.

The department made the assessment in this year's "Report on Adherence to and Compliance With Arms Control, Nonproliferation, and Disarmament Agreements and Commitments," which is also known as the "Compliance Report." The annual report was released last week.
