US analysts locate secret North Korean missile sites

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis shakes hands with South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo

Commercial satellite imagery has revealed the location and layout of a previously undisclosed North Korean missile base, including deep underground tunnels created to house the weapons. -South Korean decision to resume the exercise, saying that it runs counter to recent efforts to lower tensions on the peninsula.

He added that the regime is also reinforcing protection to prepare for precision attacks from South Korea and the US and is repairing roads so that mobile launchers can move fast and fire ballistic missiles.

Cheong Wa Dae added that it's going too far to call the North's continued activity a "great deception" given that it has no specific agreement to dismantle or disclose the facilities mentioned in the report issued by Beyond Parallel, a group at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Washington, North Korea continues to secretly develop its nuclear weapons programme despite months of talks with the U.S., according to a report released by a Washington-based think tank. This particular facility likely houses shorter-range North Korean missiles that could be used to strike South Korea in the event of war.

He also pointed out that the North has just declared a halt to its nuclear and missile tests, not the suspension of the operation of those existing facilities and a development program itself.

"This action runs counter to the current atmosphere of the global community", Liberty Korea Party floor leader Song Hee-kyung said in a statement.

"The fact that North Korea has continued to build nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in the midst of high-level diplomacy with China, South Korea and the US should not come as a surprise", said Abraham Denmark, the Asia program director at The Wilson Center.

"President Trump has 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", a spokesman for the State Department told the New York Times.

The United States and North Korea are still divided on ways to advance the denuclearization process.

South Korea has sent 200 tonnes of tangerines to the North in return for mushrooms Pyongyang gave earlier, Seoul said Monday, in the latest reconciliatory gesture between the neighbours.

North Korea called off a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY last week.

Less than 24 hours before Pompeo was scheduled to travel to NY for those meetings, the State Department announced they had been postponed because of a scheduling conflict.

During a press conference after the historic summit with Kim on June 12, Trump said he will suspend "war games" with South Korea as long as North Korea engages in denuclearization talks in a honest manner as they are "tremendously expensive" and "provocative".

In the report titled "Undeclared North Korea", the CSIS singled out a base in Sakkanmol, North Hwanghae Province where it identified the entrances to several underground tunnels and mobile launchers. North Korean media mentioned the cancelled meeting for the first time on Saturday, when the Chosun Sinbo website reported that the talks could still be productive.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump pledged to work toward denuclearization at their landmark June summit in Singapore, where Trump promised to end joint, US South Korea military exercises.

"We have given a lot of carrots up until now. So, it's useless to hide them or delay a declaration, '" he said.

"Continuing to suspend the large-scale drills while there is no progress on U.S". Then the global Commission of inquiry concluded that the ship sank the submarine of North Korea.
