DECEMBER 12, 2004 22:58 by Seung-Ryun Kim (srkim@donga.com)
 
It was confirmed that North Korea promised Iraq missile technology worth $10 million (approximately 10.5 billion won) when Saddam Hussein was in power.

An additional part of the Duelfer Report (CIA) was made available to the public on December 11 and says that the Hussein regime raised money through oil-for-food programs under the supervision of the U.N. to finance the 10 million dollar arms contract with North Korea.

According to sources at western intelligence agencies, North Korea is estimated to have sold about 540 missiles so far. The number includes 250 SCUD missiles worth $580 million, to Iran, Syria, Pakistan, and other countries between 1987 and 1992.
