Trump hails start of dismantling North Korean missile site

Trump hails start of dismantling North Korean missile site

The 38 North report comes amid growing questions about North Korea's willingness to live up to the commitments Mr Kim made at the summit, particularly to work towards denuclearisation.

Most notably, these include the rail-mounted processing building-where space launch vehicles are assembled before moving them to the launch pad-and the nearby rocket engine test stand used to develop liquid-fuel engines for ballistic missiles and space launch vehicles, the 38 North said.

Other analysts said North Korea is giving up little in dismantling the rocket engine test site when it's clear the country is satisfied with its current design of long-range weapons and could easily build other similar facilities if needed in the future.

After his summit with Kim on June 12, Trump said he was told by Kim that the North was "already destroying a major missile engine testing site" without identifying which site. US officials later confirmed that the site that the USA president was referring to was Sohae.

Pompeo reiterated that Washington will not let up on strict sanctions on Pyongyang, a day after the State Department and other US agencies issued an advisory on the North's sanctions evasion tactics.

However he indicated that no progress had been made on a key USA demand - that North Korea disclose the range of its nuclear capabilities, saying: "An initial declaration.is something that is at the very forefront of what. we think, makes sense to get them to a point where we can verify their full denuclearisation".

The U.N. Security Council prohibits trades of North Korean commodities in its Resolution 2371 adopted previous year.

During the meeting in April, both leaders pledged to work for the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" and to work with the United States and China to declare an official end to the 1950s Korean War.

In a joint statement after the summit, the North Korean leader also agreed to recover and return the remains of American soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War. "Wrong, very happy!" he said in the tweet.

EastWest Institute COO Bill Parker on the state of the Trump administration's nuclear talks with North Korea.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the country should feed its soldiers better, according to state media KCNA on Wednesday (July 25), after a defected North Korean soldier's health past year highlighted nutrition problems in the isolated state.

China and Russian Federation have argued that North Korea should be rewarded with the prospect of eased sanctions for opening up dialogue with the United States and halting missile tests.

More than 40 countries and regions that accept North Korean workers include China and Russian Federation which the report says host more North Korean laborers than all other countries and regions combined.

Seoul's defence ministry said Tuesday it was considering withdrawing some troops from the border Demilitarized Zone on a trial basis - a move which could expand into a gradual pull-out.

Washington may have to make a "bold move" for a lasting peace to replace the existing armistice agreement that brought an end to hostilities in the Korean War, a source said.
