The United States intelligence services believe that North Korea is building new missiles, the Washington Post reported on Monday.
The conviction of the US agents is based on recent satellite images of a factory that produced the first missile supposedly capable of reaching the east coast of the United States.
“Recent evidence, including satellite images in recent weeks, indicate that they are working on at least one, perhaps as many as two [intercontinental missiles] , in Sanumdong, near Pyongyang,” the US newspaper quoted officials as saying. requesting anonymity.
US diplomacy chief Mike Pompeo had already admitted to a congressional hearing that Pyongyang was still producing nuclear materials six weeks after the historic meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un.
The Washington Post reports that “this new information does not suggest an increase in North Korea’s capabilities, but shows that weapons development continues several weeks after President Trump wrote on Twitter that Pyongyang is no longer a” nuclear threat. ”
Today, generals from North Korea and South Korea are meeting with the aim of discussing ways to reduce weaponry and military presence near the border between the two countries.
The meeting, which takes place in the border town of Panmunjom, according to the South Korean Ministry of Defense, comes four days after North Korea returned the remains of US soldiers who had been reported missing during the war that took place on the Korean peninsula between 1950 and 1953.
