North Korea expands long-range missile base as Trump seeks second summit

Kim Jong Un left and South Korean President Moon Jae-in cross the military demarcation line at the border village of Panmunjom in Demilitarized Zone

Citing satellite images and analysis from a private think tank, CNN reported Wednesday that the Yeongjeo-dong missile base and a nearby site - previously unreported - remain active and have been continuously upgraded. Despite summit talks on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, satellite footage showed that Pyongyang was continuing its missile program.

"Our analytical line has not changed" a USA intelligence official told VOA, when asked about the images.

Trump said on Saturday that he hoped to organize a second summit with Kim in early 2019.

- Researchers at a college in Monterey said they have proof North Korea is not only operating and expanding a known missile base, but there's another unknown site that is also active and growing.

Zhang Baohui, a professor of political science and director of the Centre for Asian Pacific Studies at Hong Kong's Lingnan University, said China was likely to push North Korea to implement denuclearisation, in an effort to show the US Beijing was playing its part.

Its state-owned newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, said "sanctions regime by adversaries would never work ... self-sufficiency has always been our party's consistent strategy", playing down the impact of the United Nations sanctions regime on North Korea's economy and calling for the sanctions to be lifted. He just doesn't care.

Undocumented workers say Trump golf club hired them despite immigration status
An undocumented immigrant who makes President Trump's bed at one of his golf clubs is speaking out against him. In other respects, the women described some of the perks of employment, even earning cash tips from Trump.

It hasn't. And experts were warning Trump all along that it wouldn't, because Kim sees nuclear weapons as an essential tactic for his own survival. "That'll get everyone to halftime".

One such facility is the missile base near Yeongjeo-dong, a site that has long concerned US and South Korean officials and the subject of the analysis of the new images released Wednesday. Trump described the dismantlement in a tweet as "very exciting".

"They have not lived up to the commitments so far", Bolton said at The Wall Street Journal's annual CEO Council conference in Washington. "Beijing thinks the summit has [provided momentum] to reverse the deterioration of its relations with Washington, so Beijing is willing to do more to consolidate the results", he said.

But National Security Adviser John Bolton said Tuesday that there should be another summit with Kim.

The State Department declined to comment to the news outlet.
