North Korea is working on new missiles

The daughter of former president Megawati Soekarnoputri, who has continued to maintain the friendship with North Korea after her father Sukarno's reign, Puan seized the opportunity to congratulate North Korea's government and its people on the 70 anniversary of the nation's founding, which falls on September 9. Melissa Hanham, a North Korea expert at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, tells the BBC that satellite images show there has been "regular traffic in and out of the building" at the Sanumdong facility-and the pattern didn't change throughout peace talks in Singapore and the DMZ.

Buttressing the intelligence findings, independent missile experts this week also reported observing activity consistent with missile construction at the Sanumdong plant. In addition to obfuscating its number of nuclear warheads and missiles, U.S. intelligence reportedly indicated that the regime is trying to hide the type and numbers of its facilities, and prevent global inspectors from taking a look at their developments.

The revelations come just weeks after Trump said North Korea was no long a "nuclear threat".

However, John Byrd, a U.S. Department of Defense forensic anthropologist told reporters at the Osan air base in South Korea that there was "no reason to doubt" that the boxes of remains "do relate to Korean War losses", and that at least some are likely American.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un make history in the first sitting between USA and North Korean leaders, as they negotiate the end of the nuclear stand-off.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last month that the two sides had agreed to recommence field operations in North Korea to search for the missing Americans, and the Pentagon say it is considering sending personnel to North Korea for this goal.

"We see them going to work, just as before", the Post quoted one USA official as saying. The U.S. says it does not pay directly for the remains but has given the North Koreans "compensation" for the costs of the recovery in the past. "This is a facility where they build ICBMs and space-launch vehicles". The images, first reported by the online publication the Diplomat, depict a football-field-size building surrounded by a high wall, in North Korea's Chollima-guyok district, southwest of the capital. President Trump wrote in a tweet.

Cutting off oil and fuel to the North would require enforcement primarily by China, which supplies most of North Korea's energy needs, but also by Russian Federation, which delivers some oil to Pyongyang.

North Korea handed over the remains in 55 boxes last week and allowed a US military transport plane to move them to the US Osan Air Base near Seoul in South Korea. Recent photos suggested the North Koreans were in the process of dismantling a test engine stand at a satellite launching station, but various analysts warn the gesture is mostly symbolic since tests there were already complete.

But Kim did not publicly promise to end work at the country's nuclear and missile facilities, instead speaking of eventual denuclearization.

"There are chance encounters, there are sometimes planned encounters - but we're not there yet for any announcement", the official said.
