Iran has bolstered its stockpile of uranium enriched close to weapons-grade levels, according to a confidential report by the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog.

Tehran seeks to have punitive economic sanctions imposed over its contentious nuclear program rescinded in exchange for curbing the program. The program, like all state matters in Iran, operates under the oversight of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

A rocket launched by North Korea to deploy its second spy satellite exploded shortly after liftoff, state media reported, dealing a setback to leader Kim Jong Un’s ambitions to field satellites to monitor the U.S. and South Korea.

The failed launch came hours after the leaders of South Korea, China, and Japan convened in Seoul for their first trilateral summit in over four years. It’s highly unusual for North Korea to take provocative action when China, its major ally and economic lifeline, engages in high-level diplomacy in the region.

Russia and Uzbekistan signed an agreement Monday for Moscow to construct a small nuclear power plant in the Central Asian nation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin held talks in the Uzbek capital with Uzbekistan’s leader Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

A Papua New Guinea government official has told the United Nations that more than 2,000 people are believed to have been buried alive by last Friday’s landslide and has formally requested international assistance.

The government figure is roughly triple the U.N. estimate of 670 killed by the landslide in the South Pacific island nation’s mountainous interior. The remains of only five people had been recovered by Monday, local authorities reported. It was not immediately clear why the tally of six reported on Sunday had been revised down.
