  • North Korea's Ri Chun Hee announced the successful launch of a new intercontinental ballistic missile. Ri a former actress is the face the world associates with important broadcasts from the North but she may be gone in a re-vamp by the state broa

Two North Korean missile bases have been active and expanding, according to analysis of satellite images by CNN.

According to CNN, the imagery offers evidence the Yeongjeo-dong missile base and a nearby, previously unreported site remain active and have been continuously upgraded.

New satellite pictures obtained by 2 Investigates show continuous construction of a large underground facility that has been kept under wraps and located roughly seven miles away from the known Yeongjeo-dong site.

"North Korea and the U.S. appear to be making headway", a high-ranking South Korean government source told the Hankyoreh paper.

National Security Advisor John Bolton said Tuesday, December 4, that Trump thinks the North Korean strongman hasn't met the commitments he made at the Singapore summit.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will hold talks in Washington on Thursday to discuss North Korea's denuclearization among other issues, it was announced here. "Moreover, in the past year North Korea has significantly expanded a nearby facility that appears to be another missile base", the report said, adding that it was not known if the bases were separate or if one was subordinate to the other.

North Korea is now seeking security guarantees from the USA and relief from worldwide sanctions.

However, Ri's visit follows hard on the heels of last week's US-China summit in Argentina, which included discussion of North Korea.

In August, a United Nations watchdog warned that North Korea was still working on developing its nuclear arsenal.

Pence spoke days after the release of additional new commercial satellite images identifying more than a dozen undeclared North Korean missile operating bases, another sign that Pyongyang is continuing to move forward with its ballistic missile program. "Any denuclearization agreement would require North Korea to allow global inspectors to determine that these units are no longer armed with nuclear weapons", according to the report from Lewis and Schmerler. On Saturday, he told reporters that his next meeting with Kim was likely to happen in January or February.

At the time, some experts said the United States could soon accept a North Korean request for jointly declaring the end of the 1950-53 Korean War as part of security assurances to the North.

Bolton's comments Tuesday underscored the lack of progress the United States has made in moving North Korea closer to the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization Washington is seeking, and the concessions it has been making to Pyongyang, even as Trump has stressed the warmth of his relationship with Kim.

He suggested the meeting could happen in January or February and that the USA could continue to enforce the economic sanctions it imposed on North Korea over its weapons program.

The bases are believed to serve as shelters for mobile missile launchers, and would be able to store the country's newest long-range missiles, including those capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
