North Korea Is Rapidly Upgrading Nuclear Site Despite Summit Vow

North Korea is upgrading its only known nuclear research facility, satellite imagery has shown, despite ongoing negotiations with multiple world leaders and a pledge to abandon its weapons program.

The satellite photos, obtained by North Korea analysis outlet 38 North, indicate that the isolated regime is making numerous improvements to its Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center “at a rapid pace.”

The report comes just over two weeks after President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement that called for a denuclearized Korean peninsula.

North Korea is upgrading its only known nuclear research facility, satellite imagery has shown, despite ongoing negotiations with multiple world leaders and a pledge to abandon its weapons program.

The satellite photos, obtained by North Korea analysis outlet 38 North, indicate that the isolated regime is making numerous improvements to its Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center “at a rapid pace.”

The report comes just over two weeks after President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement that called for a denuclearized Korean peninsula.


38 North is a U.S.-based project that looks to gather the insight of several long-time observers of North Korea. The site, which is perhaps best known for its monitoring of Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program, is affiliated with experts at both the Stimson Center and non-profit Foreign Policy Research Institute.
‘Lofty goals’

“Infrastructure improvements continue at Yongbyon,” Jenny Town, managing editor of 38 North, said via Twitter on Wednesday.

“Underscores reason why an actual deal is necessary, not just a statement of lofty goals,” she added.

The upgrades are thought to include a new cooling water pump house, a number of new buildings, a completed construction on a cooling water reservoir and a possible radiochemical laboratory.

To be sure, 38 North noted that continued work at the Yongbyon facility should not be seen as having any significant impact to North Korea’s pledge to denuclearize. Instead, the report says the country can be expected to proceed with “business as usual” until specific orders are issued from Pyongyang.

Earlier this month, Kim Jong Un committed to “complete denuclearization” in meetings with Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae In. However, critics of the deal said the agreement lacked specific details of exactly how and when that would happen while offering too much to North Korea in return.

It would not surprise me one bit if North Korea is playing Trump like a fiddle. They've never been trustworthy in the past, why should that change now?

Because supreme Leader DT said so.
You know the NK leader doesn't poop or pee, DT took that a step further, DT doesn't poop, pee or fart.
"The Interview" is about as reliable source of propaganda as the WH.

If Lil' Rocket Man really is trying to play Trump, he's going to be made an example of. If this is true, that was a really stooooopid move on his part.

Its more like the trolls buddies just fabricating more lies, and attacking trump about something. Its their favorite thing to do. And like a bunch of slimy sewer rats clawing at the walls looking for a way out.

Apparently the CNBC spy satellites are so much more effective than the US military intelligence; they should get their intel from CNBC and save a ton of money.

If NK were to violate the agreements made with Trump, he would lose much more than he has to gain. He is not stupid.

Right now, he is on a gravy train heading for prosperity and national riches never attainable using nuclear threats.

Trump: “There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.”

Pompeo: "Korea is a nuclear threat"

Mattis: "The detailed negotiations have not begun" "I'm not aware of North Korea having taken any steps to denuclearize"

Donald Trump could have come home with the entire NOKO nuke program on a barge and you clowns would still find something to troll forums about.
