New satellite images reveal activity at unidentified North Korean missile base

In November, the New York Times reported that North Korea was still working on its nuclear missile program at more than a dozen hidden bases, according the Sakkonmol Missile Operating Base, which is about 85 miles from the Demilitarized Zone that separates North and South Korea.

Yeongjeo-dong has always been known to USA intelligence agencies but researchers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey said that the construction on a new facility, at Hoejung-ri, seven miles away, had not previously been publicly identified.

"Moreover, in the past year North Korea has significantly expanded a nearby facility that appears to be another missile base".

The missile base activity and construction shown by the satellite imagery over Yeongjeo-dong occurred after Mr. Kim agreed during a major summit with President Trump in Singapore in June to abandon North Korea's nuclear weapons program. His administration has also repeatedly claimed progress in talks with North Korea, citing the lack of nuclear and ballistic missile tests since the country launched its Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile in November of previous year.

Kim sharply raised tensions with nuclear and missile tests last year, but suddenly reached out to South Korea and the United States this year with a vague nuclear disarmament pledge.

"That's why I think the president thinks that another summit is likely to be productive".

Researchers were able to locate five entrances to underground tunnels they said may be used to store missiles.

"The Trump Administration has publicly promised to secure access to North Korea military facilities as part of any agreement", the report states.

"Those missiles are being deployed at bases throughout North Korea, many of which have always been known to outside analysts". North Korea is now seeking security guarantees from the USA and relief from the worldwide sanctions.

Despite the initial optimism generated by Kim and Trump's June summit meeting in Singapore, little has transpired since then.

President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "Around 2010, North Korea constructed a pair of large drive-through suitable for large ballistic missiles".
