North Korea is expanding missile base with eye toward U.S., experts warn

North Korea is expanding missile base with eye toward U.S., experts warn

The report said that the site's unique location would be ideal for North Korea's newest long-range missiles, including those that can carry nuclear weapons that could strike the United States.

USA officials have long said they are not surprised by similar open source findings, but have declined to offer any additional response when other sites have been identified.

He suggested the meeting could happen in January or February and that the United States could continue to enforce the economic sanctions it imposed on North Korea over its weapons program.

Last year, the US led a series of U.N. Security Council sanctions resolutions punishing the North for its tests of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The images indicate North Korea was building a large underground facility in 2017 and it was still under construction in August 2018.

North Korean efforts to upgrade and expand a long-range missile base come as no surprise to US intelligence officials, who have always been wary of promises by Pyongyang to denuclearize. Despite summit talks on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, satellite footage showed that Pyongyang was continuing its missile program.

Ukraine: Russia Allowing Some Ships Into Azov Sea Ports
In the Ukrainian port of Mariupol, Ukrainian border guard spokesman Artem Polyakov said tensions in the area were boiling. The BBC's Jonah Fisher notes what one Ukrainian official calls a "quiet blockade" of Ukraine's Azov ports.

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. Requests to visit that site and other missile sites were denied by leader Kim Jong Un, violating an agreement to end North Korea's missile program.

That missile was considered by some experts to be capable of reaching any part of the continental United States, although North Korea is not yet believed to have the ability to deliver nuclear warheads on such missiles.

Kim pretends to disarm and Trump pretends to believe him.

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

In his meeting with Trump, Kim made a vague pledge to "work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" in return for "new" relations and security guarantees from Washington.

His remarks come as the North has protested the sanctions regime, contributing to the recent impasse in U.S. A headquarters area is positioned at the mouth of the valley, the images show.
