Satellite images show activity at N. Korean missile base

Kim Jong Un clears schedule for historic visit to Seoul

The South Korean government, which dismissed previous USA media reports about North Korea's undeclared missile bases as "nothing new", said the Yeongjeo-dong missile base has always been on the surveillance list of the South Korean and U.S. militaries.

Satellite images viewed by CNN showed that the Yeongjeo-dong missile base and a nearby, previously unreported site were not only active but were being upgraded.

The second site appears to be a new facility, although experts that CNN talked to from the Middlebury Institute speculated that the new site may be part of the Yeongjeo-dong base.

As of August 2018, researchers said North Korea is continuing to construct an extremely large underground facility.

President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"It is one of North Korea's major facilities that the military has tracked and monitored in coordination with the United States forces", said Joint Chiefs of Staff's spokesperson Col. Roh Jae-chun.

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

Huawei finance chief Meng Wanzhou arrested in Canada
A person familiar with the matter told Reuters she faces extradition on charges related to USA sanctions violations. Huawei said Ms Meng, the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, was detained while transferring between flights.

The State Department declined to comment to the news outlet.

No North Korean leader has travelled to South Korea since the end of the Korean War, which killed millions.

China fought on North Korea's behalf during the Korean War, and while ties have grown frosty at times, Xi hosted Kim for three summits in China this year, both before and after Kim's meeting with Trump. "They have not lived up to the commitments so far", he told The Wall Street Journal's annual CEO Council conference. "North Korea has a big job to do".

"That's why I think the president thinks that another summit is likely to be productive", added President Trump's National Security Advisor John Bolton. "Beijing thinks the summit has [provided momentum] to reverse the deterioration of its relations with Washington, so Beijing is willing to do more to consolidate the results", he said.

Washington and Pyongyang had been locked in a diplomatic standoff for weeks over which side would make concessions first.

"Up through the valley there are a pair of hardened "drive-through" shelters that were covered with soil and had trees planted on them to disguise them".
