North Korea satellite images show missile plant construction, analysts say

NYC rendezvous for Trump and Kim

North Korea is expanding its factory that builds ballistic missiles capable of striking USA military installations, according to new satellite images.

A US delegation led by Sung Kim, US ambassador to the Philippines, met with North Korean counterparts at the border village of Panmunjeom on Sunday to discuss next steps on the implementation of the summit declaration, the State Department said.

"If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!"

Mr Trump said the United States "would be at war with North Korea" if he had not stepped in and skilfully halted Kim Jong-un's nuclear ambitions - despite USA intelligence leaks suggesting North Korea is still expanding its nuclear arsenal.

The wording dropped the usual reference to the "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization".

Kim asked Xi to help ease the sanctions that have crippled North Korea's economy, and urged China to back Pyongyang in its denuclearisation talks with Washington, the report said.

United States National Security adviser John Bolton is setting an aggressive target for North Korea.

Experts say Pompeo will have to coax significant reciprocal steps from North Korea that would firmly lock the country into a process of disarmament to justify the suspension of the U.S.

Sen. Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, called the report very troubling. Independent journalists were not given access to cover the event depicted in this image distributed by the North Korean government.

Doubts over North Korea's intentions have deepened amid reports that it is continuing to produce fissile material for weapons. In the meantime, no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months. He also said Trump and Kim should decide whether to move the nuclear weapons out of North Korea to dismantle them or do it inside the country. He told Fox Business: "I made a deal with him, I shook hands with him, I really believe he means it". "Now is it possible? Beyond that I don't have anything for you".

The company's revenue was hit by slowing sales of its premium smartphones and reduced demand for its display panels. Revenue likely came in at 58 trillion won ($51 billion), a decrease of almost 5 percent from a year earlier.

Bolton said the U.S.is "going to try and proceed to implement what the two leaders agreed to in Singapore", specifically "how to dismantle all of their WMD and ballistic missile programs in a year".

South Korean media reported on Sunday that USA envoy Sung Kim, the American ambassador to the Philippines, met with North Korean officials at the border on Sunday to coordinate an agenda for Pompeo's next visit to North Korea.

"We've had very clear conversations with them", Nauert added.

"There's no evidence that they are decreasing stockpiles, or that they have stopped their production", NBC quoted one USA official as saying.

"There was a buzz when I shared a glass of soju and talked with Ri Myong Hun in 2003", Hur said.

He pointed out that Kim has made a series of appearances in recent days focusing on economic ventures.

Even if North Korea is cooperative, the magnitude of dismantling its weapons of mass destruction programs, believed to encompass dozens of sites, will be tough, according to Stanford University academics, including nuclear physicist Siegfried Hecker, a leading expert on the North's nuclear program.

"It's kind of like increasing the price tag", he said.

Trump and Kim signed a four-point declaration after the summit, which included the denuclearization agreement, a commitment to establish new bilateral relations and joint efforts to build "a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula".

Nauert also confirmed that Pompeo has "at least a day and a half of meetings planned, depending on how the schedule goes" with the North Koreans.
