North Korea has significantly expanded and upgraded its long-range missile sites, according to satellite images published by CNN, highlighting the lack of progress in negotiations with the United States in the months since Kim Jong-un met Donald Trump.
Researchers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey say the evidence of construction at a new facility 7 miles from the Yeongjeo-dong base has not been previously publicly identified, CNN reported.
These steps have triggered a fierce backlash from many conservatives in South Korea, who argue that South Korea's liberal government led by President Moon Jae-in should not have agreed to such conventional arms reduction programmes at a time when North Korea's nuclear threats remain unchanged.
"Satellite images show that the base remains active".
"North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has cleared three days later this month to make a historic first visit to Seoul to discuss ridding the Korea peninsula of nuclear weapons", reports the New York Post.
North Korea is reportedly still upgrading one of its long-range missile bases.
"Construction on the previously unidentified site has continued even after the Singapore summit between Kim and Donald Trump in June", Jeffrey Lewis, a nonproliferation expert at the Middlebury Institute, said.
In recent months, North Korea has announced the testing of an unspecified "newly developed ultra-modern weapon" and reports have repeatedly revealed it is continuing to develop its nuclear and missiles programmes.
The US defence department said in a statement: "We watch North Korea very closely but we can not discuss intelligence".
But the North has rejected demands for what it calls "unilateral" disarmament, and has instead sought unspecified reciprocal USA measures in a gradual process. His national security adviser, John Bolton, acknowledged the failure of the Singapore summit but said...
The State Department declined to comment to the news outlet.
