Korea Constructs New Missiles While Trump Claims Denuclearization Success

02 August 2018

Trump said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un agreed to the return of remains and future cooperation in joint recovery efforts at their June 12 Singapore summit. The Trump administration, as part of the Singapore agreement, is pursuing discussions with North Korea on resuming those "field activities".

Intelligence collected by USA agencies showed, however, that senior North Korean officials have discussed plans to deceive Washington about the number of nuclear warheads and missiles they possess, as well as the types and number of facilities, and to rebuff global inspectors, according to the Post.

Their strategy, the Post said, "includes potentially asserting that they have fully denuclearized by declaring and disposing of 20 warheads while retaining dozens more".

The powerful Hwasong-15 has the proven capability to hit the US East Coast.

Coordinating Human Development and Culture Minister Puan Maharani visited North Korea on Tuesday to deliver a personal invitation from President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to attend the Asian Games 2018 hosted by Indonesia. Between 1990 and 1994, North Korea unilaterally handed over 208 caskets to the USA, which turned out to contain remains of far more than 208 individuals, although forensics specialists thus far have established 181 identities.

Critics caution the move is largely symbolic, since the facility can easily be rebuilt. The Monterey, California, nonprofit group analyzed commercial photos obtained from the satellite imagery firm Planet. Across those decades, the fallen were "entitled to one certainty - that they will never be forgotten", Davidson said.

Indeed, North Korean military officials did not claim that every item in each box went together, he said.

Les Moonves: No immediate CBS action on harassment claims
The CBS Board of Directors yesterday took no action in the matter, saying it would seek outside counsel to investigate it further. Moonves is the CEO, Chairman of the Board, and President of CBS Corporation.

The meeting, held in the border village of Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone, was created to follow on from an inter-Korean summit in April at which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tensions and halt "all hostile acts". How the trailer was being used at the time of the photograph is unclear.

A report from late June conducted by the group 38 North found evidence based on satellite images that North Korea had been making a number of improvements to the infrastructure at multiple nuclear testing sites.

Historical satellite photos show that the facility was externally complete by 2003. Adm. Phil Davidson, commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, saluted.

North Korea isn't violating any promise I know of by continuing to work on ICBMs or by enriching uranium.

There have also been reports that North Korea is operating a uranium enrichment facility in secret. But there is a broad consensus among USA intelligence agencies that Kangson is one of at least two secret enrichment plants.

When the remains of Americans handed over by North Korea arrive in Hawaii on Wednesday, the U.S. military will begin a painstaking identification process that experts said could take from three days to two decades to complete.

American officials have repeatedly stated that they will offer no sanctions relief to North Korea until the country completely, irreversibly ends its illegal nuclear weapons program. "But then they'll say, 'The next ones, we need to find them, locate them, restore them.' And then they'll start charging".

"The family of that individual has been notified", he said.

They also discussed ways to turn the skirmish-prone West Sea by ceasing firing exercises and withdrawing artillery along the shore, according to South Korea's Defence Ministry.

The North demonstrated sharp progress in its program previous year when it test-fired numerous missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.

North Korea has provided very little information to help identify the remains, a defense official told VOA.

"We have not been taken for a ride", Pompeo added.

"Generally speaking what I can tell you is that the remains are consistent with the remains we have recovered in North Korea", John Byrd, director of analysis for the U.S. Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency told a news conference before the ceremony.
