After the Singapore summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, the hermit kingdom had begun dismantling portions of its nuclear facility located at Sohae satellite launching station. However, it seems North Korea is also working simultaneously to build two more ICBMs at Sanumdong, on the outskirts of Pyongyang. This is a different location as informed by US Intelligence officials.

Daily Mail UK reports that the setup that is building these new intercontinental ballistic missiles is the same that had built North Korea’s first rocket that could reach America.

Subsequent to the summit, Donald Trump was confident that he had been able to convince Kim Jong-un to abandon his nuclear ambitions. He had gone to the extent of announcing that Pyongyang was no longer a “nuclear threat,” and its work on building new missiles goes against the spirit of the Trump-Kim agreements.

The two Koreas want to ease tensions

Officials from North Korea have met their counterparts from South Korea to ease tension along the borders. This was the second meeting since June at Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone (DMZ). It is believed to have been a part of follow-up action as decided in the inter-Korean summit of April.

The ICBM that is being built is the liquid-fueled Hwasong-15. This information is based on various images that are available with U.S. Intelligence and pertain to the movement of vehicles and people in the vicinity of the facility. The White House has not commented on this, but U.S. and South Korean intelligence agencies are investigating the matter.

At the Singapore summit, Kim Jong-un had committed to work towards denuclearization.

Of course, satellite images have revealed that North Korea has initiated work to dismantle the missile setup at Sohae satellite launching station. This site is believed to have contributed towards building the North’s ICBM program. This is according to 38North, which has released the recent satellite images taken on July 20 and July 22.

Intentions of North Korea are not clear

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un had met in Singapore, they discussed denuclearization ain, at the end, Trump made the announcement that Pyongyang was “no longer a Nuclear Threat.” However, the country has still not disclosed its plans to ensure fulfillment of its commitment.

According to the Washington Post, latest reports appears to indicate that North Korea is still involved in work related to its nuclear and missile facilities. This does not suggest an expansion of the its capabilities but does show that work has not been abandoned. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has acknowledged during a recent Senate testimony that factories in the North “continue to produce fissile material” used in making nuclear weapons.
