North Korea Believed to be Increasing Nuclear Production

Suspicions over North Korea's commitment to denuclearize has been growing as NBC News also reported over the weekend that Pyongyang has in fact recently been increasing fuel production for nuclear weapons at several hidden sites.

The analysis, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, is the latest to undercut Trump's assurances that North Korea is "no longer a nuclear threat" after his June 12 meeting with Kim in Singapore.

CNN published satellite photos last week showing infrastructure upgrades in the works at Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center, a major nuclear research site in North Korea.

Activity also continues at a nearby building where plutonium.

North Korea has a permanent mission in New York City, which served as the location last month for a meeting between America's chief diplomat and Kim's second in command.

North Korea is completing a major expansion of a key missile-manufacturing plant, according to new satellite pictures that have cast fresh doubt on Pyongyang's commitment to disarm despite USA pressure.

The Defense Department has always been skeptical of North Korea moving quickly to denuclearize.

Reports suggest the North Korean leader is continuing with his nuclear program despite the president claiming, "There is no longer a nuclear threat".

If Kim does visit NY in September, it will be the longest journey he has ever taken as North Korean leader.

The New York Times reported Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will make his third trip to North Korea this week with a proposed schedule for that nation's disarmament.

US intelligence is not certain how many nuclear warheads North Korea has.

My colleagues Ellen Nakashima and Joby Warrick reported that evidence gathered by USA intelligence officials in the weeks since the June 12 summit led to the conclusion that North Korea "does not intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpile, and instead is considering ways to hide the number of weapons it has and secret production facilities".

Senator Murphy could not be reached for further comment by Newsweek on Saturday about North Korea's continued nuclear weapons program and what type of response he would like to see from the president. "I'll likely travel back before too terribly long", the top USA diplomat said in June.

"It is perfectly rational for North Korea to shift the emphasis to developing solid fuel missiles now that it already has a suite of liquid fuel missiles to deter an attack", he said.

Another U.S. official cautioned: "Work is ongoing to deceive us on the number of facilities, the number of weapons, the number of missiles".

It also stopped short of longstanding United States demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way.

He said the administration was well aware of North Korea's track record over the decades in dragging out negotiations with the U.S.to continue weapons development.

Trump said he would be ending joint military exercises between the US and South Korea. And by the way I really believe North Korea has a tremendous future.

Nuclear officials could be "expected to proceed with business as usual until specific orders are issued from Pyongyang", it said.

"I don't think anybody ought to have a case of the vapors" about President Trump's rhetoric on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and Russia, Bolton said, adding that the meeting will allow the leaders to cut through the "political noise" of alleged Russian collusion.
