North Korea Is Building New Missiles

The lack of progress has been a source of concern for many observers, especially as global sanctions are beginning to ease and news reports indicate that North Korea is continuing its nuclear and ballistic programs.

The reported new missile construction follows Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's testimony last week in which he told senators Pyongyang continues to make nuclear fissile material, without indicating whether North Korea was building new missiles.

A United States official noted to Reuters that this recent activity suggests North Korea may be looking to improve their missiles.

That's because according to The Washington Post, North Korea has continued to build new ballistic missiles despite Trump claiming Kim had pledged to denuclearize.

According to the United States official who spoke to Reuters, one photo showed a truck and covered trailer similar to those the North has used to move its ICBMs.

She also said the visit aimed to strengthen Indonesia's "long and historical relationship" with North Korea, forged decades ago by the two nations' respective founding fathers, Sukarno and Kim Il-sung.

The Economy Is Strong And It's Getting Stronger According To President Trump
Consumer spending grew 4 percent , more than expected, while nonresidential business investment climbed at a pace of 7.3 percent. Annual growth has averaged just 2.2 percent since mid-2009 through the end of a year ago , the same as previously reported.

The intelligence doesn't suggest an expansion of North Korea's capabilities, but shows that work on advanced weapons is continuing, according to the Post.

During the summit, Kim also agreed to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" in return for Trump's promise of security guarantees. Some have regarded that as purely symbolic, noting it could easily be rebuilt. The Monterey, California, nonprofit group analyzed commercial photos obtained from the satellite imagery firm Planet.

"We see shipping containers and vehicles coming and going", Lewis was quoted as saying by the Post.

North Korea halted nuclear and missile tests, shut down its nuclear testing site and began dismantling facilities at its rocket launch site.

More than 35,000 Americans were killed on the Korean Peninsula during the war and around 7,700 of them are still considered missing, including 5,300 in North Korea alone.

Agents acted on search warrants based in part on evidence from Russian Federation special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators. "We need for the appropriate conditions to exist, to be created, including in our countries".

The meeting, the second since June and held in the border village of Panmunjom, was created to follow on from an inter-Korean summit in April at which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tension and halt "all hostile acts". This intelligence has been backed up by satellite images. The complex has a single, guarded entrance and features high-rise residential towers apparently used by workers. Four U.S. fighter jets flew low in a tribute. If so, North Korea's stockpile of enriched uranium could be substantially higher than is commonly believed.

While North Korea honored its promise to return the remains of fallen US soldiers during the Korean War, there have been troubling reports that Pyongyang will never truly disarm.

The report was based on classified intelligence supplied by US officials under the condition of anonymity.

Past remains have been found to be co-mingled and in at least one case contained animal bones.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will urge Asian countries at an upcoming meeting in Singapore to enforce United Nations sanctions on North Korea aimed at dismantling Pyongyang's nuclear program, a US official said Tuesday.
