Satellite Images Suggest North Korea Is Up To Something Once Again

The remains of foreign soldiers returned by North Korea last week are likely to be American, an official at the USA agency that deals with troops missing in action said Wednesday, as a United States military aircraft prepared to repatriate the cases to Hawaii.

Instead, senior North Korean officials have discussed their intention to deceive Washington about the number of nuclear warheads and missiles they have, as well as the types and numbers of facilities, and to rebuff global inspectors, according to intelligence gathered by USA agencies.

At the United Nations, the United States asked a UN sanctions committee to halt all deliveries of refined oil products to North Korea after accusing Pyongyang of using illegal imports to exceed a cap on permissible deliveries.

The return follows the historic June 12 summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Donald Trump met North Korea's Kim Jong-un in Singapore in June.

"Since these facilities are believed to have played an important role in the development of technologies for the North's intercontinental ballistic missile program", says Joseph Bermudez on the website 38 North, "these efforts represent a significant confidence-building measure on the part of North Korea".

It looks as if North Korea isn't turning over a new leaf after all.

"There's no reason at this point to doubt that they do relate to Korean War losses".

The general-level officers, including South Korean Major General Kim Do-gyun, were discussing ways to implement April's inter-Korean summit agreements on non-nuclear military issues, but no huge announcement is expected from the talks at the border village of Panmunjom.

Critics say Trump and Kim's agreement fell woefully short on specifics when it comes to Pyongyang's nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles, but Trump and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have preached patience. Trump declared soon after the summit that North Korea no longer posed a nuclear threat. But since then, North Korea has made few tangible moves signaling an intention to disarm.

North Korea is continuing to build new missiles, according to US officials cited by the Washington Post.

That was the case with U.S. negotiations with the Soviet Union during the Cold War, and more recently with Iran, "which continued to build more centrifuges capable of producing nuclear material even as it negotiated with the United States to limit those capabilities", Mr Wit said.

Satellite images showed continued activity at North Korean nuclear and missile sites.

"In Singapore I never heard the words: we will unilaterally disarm", Narang said.

But Mr Trump was criticised at home for making concessions without securing any firm commitment from Mr Kim to end the nuclear and missile programmes.

She also said the visit aimed to strengthen Indonesia's "long and historical relationship" with North Korea, forged decades ago by the two nations' respective founding fathers, Sukarno and Kim Il-sung. It had been used to assemble space launch vehicles and develop and test liquid-fuel rocket engines.

It's been unclear what both sides mean by "complete denuclearisation", and no further details have been released about when or how Pyongyang would renounce its nuclear weapons nor how the process would be verified.
