North Korea may be working on new intercontinental missiles

North Korea Might Be Working On New ICBMs

When the remains of Americans handed over by North Korea arrive in Hawaii on Wednesday, the USA military will begin a painstaking identification process that experts said could take from three days to two decades to complete.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will urge Asian countries at an upcoming meeting in Singapore to enforce United Nations sanctions on North Korea aimed at dismantling Pyongyang's nuclear program, a US official said Tuesday.

This factory has already produced two of North Korea's ICBMs, including the one that could supposedly strike the US East Coast - the Hwasong-15.

The US official was speaking anonymously to the Reuters news agency after The Washington Post reported that one or two new liquid-fuelled missiles appeared to be under construction.

The factory in question reportedly produced two ICBMs, including the Hwasong-15 - a missile capable of reaching the USA eastern seaboard.

But some independent analysts think the Trump administration has misread Kim's intentions, interpreting his commitment to eventual denuclearization as a promise to immediately surrender the country's nuclear arsenal and dismantle its weapons factories. She did not rule out meetings, though she did say no interactions were specifically planned.

"Kim committed in a broad summit statement to work towards denuclearisation, but Pyongyang has offered no details about how it might go about that". Trump later suspended annual military drills with South Korea which North Korea had long called an invasion rehearsal.

World leaders warn against 'Kiki' dance challenge
All this craze about dancing with the tune of Drake's song " In my feelings " began with an Instagram post by comedian Shiggy . The police warns, " Kiki Challenge may land you in a hospital bed or behind bars, depending on what you do and where you are".

According to DPAA, about 7,700 USA service members are still listed as missing from the Korean War, and about 5,300 are believed to have been lost on battlefields and in prison camps in what is now North Korea.

Intelligence reports also state that North Korean officials intend to "deceive Washington about the number of nuclear warheads and missiles" and to also fool global inspectors while hiding some of their facilities. It is unclear whether Kim will follow through on any of those promises as the country's officials have discussed plans to deceive Washington about their unclear arsenal, according to the Post. North Korea has steadfastly argued its nuclear weapons are meant to neutralize alleged USA plans to attack it. The U.S. says it does not pay directly for the remains but has given the North Koreans "compensation" for the costs of the recovery in the past. Pyongyang has indicated its willingness to make concessions, in part by dismantling key elements of a satellite-launching station that may have played a role in its weapons program.

Besides being the US's largest trading partner, China is arguably the most important player in Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign to force Kim to give up his nuclear arsenal.

Mr Pompeo said last week that North Korea was continuing to produce fuel for nuclear bombs. "We have not been taken for a ride", he said. "Senator, I hope you can leave a little bit better tonight".

55 caskets draped in the United Nations flag were loaded onto two U.S. Air Force C-17 aircraft, which took off Wednesday evening, Korea time, . heading to Hawaii for DNA identification.

"Pressure on the regime is clearly being felt", Pompeo said.

"There's a whole lot of us".
