US officials did not immediately comment on the open-source findings by researchers.

"Absent mechanisms for the on-the-ground verification by inspectors, we can not confirm that North Korea has taken any other denuclearization steps at this time", he said.

Some analysts say the activity is geared toward the continual development of nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missiles that could reach the US mainland.

Using satellite imagery, they located tunnels in Yeongjeo-dong that might be used for storing missiles and the construction of a new headquarters, as well as a pair of drive-through shelters in Hoejung-ni suitable for large ballistic missiles and "an extremely large underground facility" under construction farther up a narrow valley. "Moreover, in the past year North Korea has significantly expanded a nearby facility that appears to be another missile base", the report said, adding that it was not known if the bases were separate or if one was subordinate to the other. Despite summit talks on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, satellite footage showed that Pyongyang was continuing its missile program.

But their geographic locations make them ideal to "house long-range missiles", they said in a report they were preparing.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will hold talks in Washington on Thursday to discuss North Korea's denuclearization among other issues, it was announced here.

Following the recent G-20 meeting in Argentina, South Korean Moon Jae-in told reporters that Trump has "very favorable" views toward Kim and that he "likes him".

South Korea's Defense Ministry, citing the country's Joint Chiefs of Staff, acknowledged Yeongjeo-ri is a missile base and is "one of the important North Korean sites that is being tracked and surveilled in cooperation with the United States".

"That's why I think the president thinks that another summit is likely to be productive", Bolton said during the Wall Street Journal's CEO conference.

Last month, Vice President Mike Pence told NBC News that the USA will not require North Korea to provide a full list of its nuclear and missile sites before Trump meets again with Kim.
