North Korea appears to be building one or two ICBMs

01 August 2018

"North Korea has great potential for the future!"

Mr Trump and Mr Kim also agreed to work towards the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", however reports this week indicate that North Korea may be building new missiles.

A satellite image shows the Sanumdong missile production site in North Korea on July 29, 2018. Pompeo had previously included that word when stating US policy.

"Fear not, senator. Fear not", advised Pompeo.

During the meeting, Indonesia welcomed the participation of joint North and South Korean teams at the Asian Games, which Puan said could strengthen friendship and further peace efforts on the Korean Peninsula, according to a statement from the Indonesian Embassy in Pyongyang.

Longtime North Korea scholar, and frequent visitor to the North, Andrei Lankov tells NPR that North Korea has a very different understanding of "denuclearization" from that of Pompeo.

The Pentagon estimates that of the approximately 7,700 U.S. MIAs from the Korean War, about 5,300 are unaccounted for on North Korean soil. "When that happens, the North Korean government will probably be happy to surrender its nukes as well".

Next of kin looked distraught after receiving the document, many sobbing and saying that the document offered them "no closure". And a second, private search by U.S. company Ocean Infinity that finished earlier this year also found no sign of the wreckage.

After racing toward his goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the continental United States, Kim said in April that he had shifted his country's focus to the economy.

During their meeting in Singapore, the first ever between sitting leaders of their respective countries, both Kim and Trump committed to recovering the remains of United States service members who died during the Korean War and whose bodies were never found. "That's why we go through all the forensics".

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

The repatriation brings renewed hope to families who have waited decades for closure, although the full identification process could take years.

At that point, no remains had been sent back. Well, it might not have been as good as Trump claimed. Six boxes were given to then-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Anthony Principi on a trip to the North.

That was the case with USA negotiations with the Soviet Union during the Cold War, and more recently with Iran, "which continued to build more centrifuges capable of producing nuclear material even as it negotiated with the United States to limit those capabilities", Mr Wit said.

Pompeo confirmed Markey's assertion. It had been used to assemble space launch vehicles and develop and test liquid-fuel rocket engines.

The family said authorities told them the boy had called 911 from the house, relatives told the San Francisco Chronicle . Officials said Monday that 723 homes have been destroyed by that fire, up from a previous count of 657 homes lost.

The pledge to transfer war remains was seen as a goodwill gesture by Kim at the Singapore summit, and was the most concrete agreement reached by the two sides so far.

The remains were then moved in gray vans to an airfield where United States and South Korean soldiers loaded them one by one into transport planes. At least one of the new missiles is another one of these.

Vipin Narang, a North Korea expert and professor of worldwide relations at MIT, noted that this was also clear from the Kim-Trump summit.

As noted above, North Korea appears to be building more long-range ballistic missiles even as it dismantles the Sohae station. The commitments it made to President Trump were too vague to preclude such activity.

But in between those two calls, phone records show that Trump Jr. was connected with a phone number that was blocked in records. Giuliani said there are about 11 or 12 other Cohen tapes in which others discuss the president and members of his family.
