U.S. Intel Reportedly Says North Korea is Building New Missiles As Trump Continues to Boast of Progress

U.S. spy satellites have detected renewed activity at a North Korean nuclear missile factory, according to a senior USA official.

The remains are believed to belong to servicemen from the US and other United Nations member countries who fought alongside the USA during the Korean War.

The defense official said, "It could take months, or even years to identify them". The remains will be analyzed in Hawaii to determine whether they are those of USA service members missing since the Korean War.

North Korea may want to use the remains' return to keep diplomacy with the United States alive and win a reciprocal USA concession.

"And I'm sure that he will continue to fulfill that promise as they search and search and search", said Trump, who has sent Vice President Mike Pence to Hawaii to receive the remains. Trump thanked Kim for the return.

During the meeting, Maharani invited a joint North and South Korean team to take part in the Asian Games, as part of efforts to improve relations between the countries and strengthen reconciliation progress on the Korean Peninsula.

The repatriation is a breakthrough in a long-stalled US effort to obtain war remains from North Korea.

"But we do know they are heroes, all", Pence said.

USA officials catalogued the bones after flying them aboard a US military transport to Osan air base in South Korea.

Pompeo assured lawmakers that the U.S. was working toward finding a solution without easing its sanctions against North Korea, but also admitted during his testimony that it was "continuing to create fissile material". However, just as in the case of all the supposed chemical and biological weapons sites in Iraq, US intelligence agencies have in the past declared that certain sites within North Korea were secret nuclear facilities, when further investigation showed less threatening answers.

The remains of American soldiers handed over last week by North Korea are on their way to Hawaii now to be identified through DNA testing.

Spy satellites have picked up new activity at the North Korean site that made the country's first intercontinental missiles, according to a senior United States official.

"I don't think North Korea is refusing to give dog tags when it has more but it probably doesn't have dog tags lying around", he said. The Trump administration, as part of the Singapore agreement, is pursuing discussions with North Korea on resuming those "field activities".
