Satellite images show activity at North Korean missile base

08 December 2018

The missile base activity and construction shown by the satellite imagery over Yeongjeo-dong occurred after Mr. Kim agreed during a major summit with President Trump in Singapore in June to abandon North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

New satellite pictures obtained by 2 Investigates show continuous construction of a large underground facility that has been kept under wraps and located roughly seven miles away from the known Yeongjeo-dong site.

In a statement the Pentagon said: "We watch North Korea very closely but we can not discuss intelligence".

Following his June summit in Singapore with Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader, Trump claimed that there was "no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

"They have not lived up to the commitments so far", Bolton said at The Wall Street Journal's annual CEO Council conference in Washington.

"That's why I think the president thinks that another summit is likely to be productive".

United Nations chief says world is 'way off course' on climate change

Wait.haven't we heard this before?

The site's unique location makes it a strong candidate to receive North Korea's newest long-range missiles, including those that can carry nuclear weapons and can strike the United States, according to Lewis and his colleague David Schmerler.

The latest CNN analysis is in addition to these past reports.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is preparing for his three-day trip to the South Korean capital later this month; making a historic visit to Seoul to discuss the complete denuclearization of the region.

Members of the Kim dynasty have promised that they would denuclearize and then backtracked on six separate occasions in 1985, 1992, 1994, 2005, 2007, and 2012. Kim pretends to disarm and Trump pretends to believe him.

But despite the meetings and ongoing talks, many in Washington remain skeptical of the North Korea's seriousness.

Giuliani Mocked After Response to Twitter Prank Shows Lack of Technical Knowledge
He shared what he had done on Twitter , writing, "Rudy didn't separate g-20 so ya boy bought the domain". Trump himself tweets constantly about the " Witch Hunt ", and Giuliani plays ball with tweets of his own.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that the global sanctions campaign against North Korea is an example of U.S. leadership in the world.

Bolton said the USA would press ahead with a second meeting shortly after the start of the new year - saying, "January, February" - in the hope of making further progress.

Bruce Bennett, a senior defence researcher at the Rand Corporation, said North Korea had not yet started denuclearisation, and the lifting of sanctions was not on the Trump administration's table at this stage.

The North officially suspended its nuclear and missile tests ahead of the June summit, and missile production and deployment does not technically violate any agreement between Pyongyang and the US and South Korea.

Kim announced the dismantlement of a nuclear facility at another site in Nyongbyon at a summit with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in in September.

At the time, some experts said the United States could soon accept a North Korean request for a joint declaration of the end of the 1950-53 Korean War as part of security assurances to the North. Additional tunnels were also found, as seen in satellite pictures, including a pair of large drive-through shelters capable of holding large ballistic missiles.
