Lewis and Schmerler said they were still not sure whether Yeongjeo-dong and the new facility under construction in nearby Hoejung-ni, both in the mountainous area near North Korea's central border with China, were separate bases or parts of a larger single operation.

North Korea has expanded a long-range missile base in the country's interior and appears to be building a new one, according to a report.

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

"North Korea has a big job to do".

"Whatever Kim says about his desire for denuclearization, North Korea continues to produce and deploy nuclear armed missiles", he told CNN.

While Kim is not violating any agreement with the United States or South Korea by continuing to produce and deploy existing types of missiles, the identification of yet another active North Korean missile base comes at a time when some members of the Trump administration are declaring that Pyongyang has failed to uphold its end of the bargain thus far.

North Korea has expanded a key long-range missile base in the months since a summit between the country's leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump, according to satellite images published by CNN on Wednesday.




No North Korean leader has traveled to South Korea since fighting stopped in the Korean War, which killed millions.

"[Trump] asked me to tell Chairman Kim that he wants to implement the rest of their agreement together and he will fulfill Chairman Kim's wishes", Moon added.

Since the Singapore meeting, talks between North Korea and the United States have stalled over how to eradicate the North's nuclear weapons program. He said the Trump administration would not lift hefty economic sanctions against the regime until then.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has likewise questioned Pyongyang's commitment to denuclearize.

However, ongoing activity at the sites feeds into USA criticisms that North Korea is now dragging its heels over the denuclearization process.

"North Korea and the USA appear to be making headway", a high-ranking South Korean government source told the Hankyoreh paper.

"This is one of the important locations in North Korea our military is monitoring in cooperation with the United States", Roh Jae-cheon, a South Korean military spokesman, said Thursday about the North Korean base.
