Satellite images show activity at a missile base in North Korea

Satellite images show activity at a missile base in North Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is preparing for his three-day trip to the South Korean capital later this month; making a historic visit to Seoul to discuss the complete denuclearization of the region.

Yeongjeo-dong has always been known to U.S. intelligence agencies but researchers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey said that the construction on a new facility, at Hoejung-ri, seven miles away, had not previously been publicly identified.

One such facility is the missile base near Yeongjeo-dong, a site that has long concerned US and South Korean officials and the subject of the analysis of the new images released Wednesday.

China fought on North Korea's behalf during the Korean War, and while ties have grown frosty at times, Xi hosted Kim for three summits in China this year, both before and after Kim's meeting with Trump.

North Korea had announced the testing of an unspecified "newly developed ultramodern weapon" amid reports that it was continuing to develop its nuclear and missiles programs. His national security adviser, John Bolton, acknowledged the failure of the Singapore summit but said...

The researchers said given the work that has been done and the site's location, the bases could be in line to receive North Korea's newest long-range missiles, some of which are capable of carrying nuclear warheads and of reaching the United States.




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

Following the recent G-20 meeting in Argentina, South Korean Moon Jae-in told reporters that Trump has "very favorable" views toward Kim and that he "likes him".

"The Trump Administration has publicly promised to secure access to North Korea military facilities as part of any agreement", the report states.

President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

In October, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Kim Jong-Un in Pyongyang to verify that the Punggye-ri nuclear test site had been "irreversibly dismantled". Despite summit talks on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, satellite footage showed that Pyongyang was continuing its missile program. "In front of the pair of drive throughs, there is a concrete pad that was also covered in dirt", according to the analysis by Lewis and Schmerler.
