Trump Weighs 2nd North Korea Summit as Possible Missile Site Appears

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is preparing for his three-day trip to the South Korean capital later this month; making a historic visit to Seoul to discuss the complete denuclearization of the region.

Yeongjeo-dong has always been known to U.S. intelligence agencies but researchers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey told CNN that the construction on a new facility, at Hoejung-ri, seven miles away, had not previously been publicly identified.

Lewis and Schmerler said they were still not sure whether Yeongjeo-dong and the new facility under construction in nearby Hoejung-ni, both in the mountainous area near North Korea's central border with China, were separate bases or parts of a larger single operation.

There was no immediate reaction from the Trump administration Thursday to the reports that raised concern in national security circles about the pace of denuclearization talks between Washington and Pyongyang.

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

North Korea had announced the testing of an unspecified "newly developed ultramodern weapon" amid reports that it was continuing to develop its nuclear and missiles programs.

President Trump, who met with Kim during a summit in Singapore in June, supports Kim traveling to South Korea and thinks it could pave the way for another summit after the first of the year.

"They have not lived up to the commitments so far", Bolton said.

Kim pretends to disarm and Trump pretends to believe him.

In his meeting with Trump, Kim made a vague pledge to "work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" in return for "new" relations and security guarantees from Washington.

Since the Singapore meeting, talks between North Korea and the United States have stalled over how to eradicate the North's nuclear weapons program. "Any denuclearization agreement would require North Korea to allow worldwide inspectors to determine that these units are no longer armed with nuclear weapons", according to the report from Lewis and Schmerler.

In an interview with Radio Free Asia, Thae Yong-ho, who defected from the North while serving as deputy ambassador to the United Kingdom, said that Pyongyang would never agree to end its weapons programme through a "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" process.

The base itself is strung along a narrow valley.

"There are five entrances to underground tunnels that may be used to store missiles", the report states. "These shelters are similar to the ones seen at the older portion of the Yeongjeo-dong base".
