North Korea Is Reportedly Dismantling Key Missile Program Facilities

Meanwhile, a missile-engine testing facility that Trump said would be destroyed remains intact, and US intelligence officials say Pyongyang is working to hide key aspects of its nuclear program.

Satellite images of the Sohae station seen by US-based monitoring group 38 North suggest Pyongyang is complying with a promise made to the U.S. 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, these efforts represent a significant confidence building measure on the part of North Korea", it said. "Likewise, no Nuclear Tests", Trump wrote, noting that Japan and Asia were pleased with the results of his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Scholte, a veteran observer of the Korean Peninsula, also said she's hopeful because North Korea's usual escalation of anti-U.S. propaganda between the Korean War anniversary June 25, and July 27, the anniversary of the war's Armistice, has not occurred.

However, tweets by Donald Trump following the meeting with Kim showed that "there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

North Korea's recent series of tirades against South Korea appear to indicate its discomfort over Seoul's adherence to the worldwide sanctions regime and a lack of progress in cross-border exchanges, analysts in Seoul said Sunday.

In a separate article, Arirang-Meari on Monday added more criticism of the Trump administration, reiterating its view that a declaration of the end of the Korean War is "the essential requirement for trust building between the DPRK and the U.S".

The boats aren't new to controversy and have been involved in other deadly accidents over the years, both on land and in water. Divers are expected to swim down to the Ride the Ducks boat and connect it to a crane, which will lift it to the surface.

But their agreement contained no details about when or how North Korea would abandon its nuclear weapons program or shut down its existing nuclear facilities.

"Given that the South Korean government also has an obligation to carry out what was agreed upon in the Panmunjom Declaration, it should not sit idle on the issue of declaring an end to the war", said Uriminzokkiri, the North's external propaganda website, in English, referring to the April summit agreement.

"This could (and that's a big could) mean that North Korea is also willing to forgo satellite launches for the time being as well as nuclear and missile tests".

"We have no time limit", Trump told reporters last week.

Pyongyang apparently has a big demand for the US if the latter wants to keep talking about North Korea's nuclear arsenal. We have not seen a removal of fuel rods."Brooks pledged not to "overreact to things like that", arguing that the persistence of such equipment and capabilities can amount to a negotiating tactic by the North Koreans in the early stages of the denuclearization process".

On Monday, the U.S. State Department issued an advisory together with the departments of Treasury and Homeland Security alerting businesses to North Korea's sanctions-evasion tactics.
