North Korea SECRETLY working on missiles which could HIT US, experts claim

North Korea is under crippling sanctions imposed for carrying out nuclear and ballistic missile tests but UN resolutions specify that these should not affect humanitarian aid

They suggest Pyongyang is continuing its missile work, even though it has halted test launches in what President Donald Trump and his Government have claimed as a success since his historic June meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

US analysts say they have located more than half of an estimated 20 secret North Korean missile development facilities.

The existence of the bases - which presumably would have to be declared and then dismantled under the U.S. goal of North Korean "denuclearisation" - suggests that North Korea's previous efforts to dismantle known missile launch sites or nuclear facilities had little impact on its nuclear programme.

North Korea abruptly pulled out of planned talks with Pompeo in NY last week, and have so far not sent a delegation to talk to the newly appointed U.S. envoy for North Korean talks, Stephen Biegun.

Trump said on Twitter shortly after that summit "there is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea". For decades, the bases have been camouflaged to prevent destruction from preemptive strikes and during military operations. State-run media, in a statement two weeks ago, warned that North Korea was "seriously" considering a return to a guiding policy of building nuclear weapons and said that sanctions were "incompatible" with improving relations with Washington.

A State Department official, asked whether those hidden sites went against the spirit of the summit and whether North Korea must give them up, said Trump had made clear that "should Chairman Kim follow through on his commitments - including complete denuclearization and the elimination of ballistic missile programs - a much brighter future lies ahead for North Korea and its people".

The report singled out a base known as Sakkanmol, about 80 kilometers north of the demilitarised zone and one of the closest to South Korea.

On Monday, state controlled media said that small-scale military drills by a few hundred usa marines and South Korean forces represented a violation of a summit agreement between Kim and the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in.

A Digital Globe satellite image shows what CSIS reports is an undeclared missile operating base at Sakkanmol.

Trump said "billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Authorities estimated that more than 6,000 structures were destroyed. "It was devastating out here in Malibu", Jenner said.

The bases, which are located in "mountainous terrain, often spread out within narrow dead-end valleys", they write, could be used to deploy mobile missile launchers, which would be extremely hard for other nations to track and stop before the missiles could be fired.

The findings, which were released amid signs the administration's negotiations with the North have stalled, drew on commercial satellite imagery and identify 13 secret facilities used to produce missiles and related technology.

Furthermore, North Korea has repeatedly rejected United States requests for a detailed and accurate disclosure of the country's nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities.

Trump, in a free-wheeling news conference after midterm elections, said he was willing eventually to ease the pressure on North Korea. But it repeated North Korean warnings that the country could restart its nuclear weapons development if the United States does not make more concessions.

Analysts have long believed that North Korea had undeclared or hidden facilities in their missile programme, which has made issues related to verification and inspections a major part of working level talks between the United States and North Korea.

"What North Korea has offered is the beginning of a process that might - might - someday lead to an outcome like that".

Three types of missile bases were identified in the photos, including long-range facilities holding weapons which could potentially reach the US.

"But I will say this, I will say this very simply - We are in no rush, the sanctions are on", he said.
