North Korea 'working on new missiles', USA officials say

North Korea 'working on new missiles', USA officials say”

It also comes despite U.S. President Donald Trump's claim on Twitter, shortly after his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, that Pyongyang was "no longer a Nuclear Threat".

The Post says new evidence, including satellite photographs, indicate the missiles are liquid-fueled intercontinental ballistic missiles and are being constructed at a factory that produced North Korea's first such missile capable of reaching the United States.

"We had expected that the USA side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders' summit. we were also thinking about providing reciprocal measures", Pyongyang's Foreign Ministry said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

SEOUL-North Korea has constructed two new buildings at a missile facility in the northern suburbs of Pyongyang and appears to be actively continuing production there, according to an analysis of newly available commercial satellite imagery, the latest sign of continued progress in the country's nuclear and missile program. He declined to answer that, but he did say that North Korea continues to produce fissile material, the fuel for nuclear bombs, and that there are no US or worldwide inspectors on the ground to see what North Korea is doing at its facilities. He declined to say whether Pyongyang is building new missiles.

"What's more, a liquid-fuelled ICBM doesn't pose nearly the threat that a solid-fuelled one would because they take so long to fuel, and that's something we almost certainly could see in time to abort a launch, given our assets in the vicinity".

Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., asked Pompeo at that hearing about whether North Korea was still producing material for nuclear weapons. "This is a facility where they build ICBMs and space-launch vehicles".

But at their landmark meeting in Singapore, Mr Trump and Mr Kim agreed to work towards the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula".

Lewis's group also published images of a large industrial facility that some US intelligence analysts believe to be the Kangson uranium enrichment plant.

Pompeo had struck a different tone, telling reporters as he left that the talks with senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol had been "productive". USA intelligence agencies believe that it has been operational for at least a decade. But there is a broad consensus among USA intelligence agencies that Kangson is one of at least two secret enrichment plants.

President Donald Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June.

"They seem to have figured out the engines, but not all the higher-tech stuff, and that might be what this is about", the official said.
"We have not been taken for a ride", he said. "That was certainly the case during the Cold War when the US and USSR continued to build missiles and nuclear weapons even while negotiating arms reduction agreements".
