There is no indication that North Korea is developing new technology, but if confirmed the latest intelligence would raise doubts over the broad commitment Kim Jong-un made to denuclearisation at his summit with President Trump last month.
Several U.S. officials and private analysts said the continued activity inside North Korea's weapons complex is not surprising, given that Kim made no public promise at the summit to halt work at the scores of nuclear and missiles facilities scattered around the country. "The anti-north sanctions are an unreasonable step taken by the USA and other hostile forces for the mere reason that the DPRK conducted self-defensive nuclear tests and ballistic rocket fires to defend peace and security from the aggression and war threat by outsiders", it argued.
Indeed, North Korean military officials did not claim that every item in each box went together, he said.

Some European intelligence officials do not believe that the Kangson site is used for uranium enrichment, but many USA agencies agree that Kangson is one of at least two secret enrichment plants, according to the Post. "And for all in attendance, this is a solemn reminder that our work is not complete until all have been accounted for, no matter how long it takes to do so".
The recovery efforts stalled for more than a decade because of a standoff over North Korea's nuclear ambitions and a previous United States claim that security arrangements for its personnel working in the North were insufficient. Many nations fought in the Korean War, but most of the cases are thought to contain U.S. troops.

"I know that President Trump is grateful that Chairman Kim has kept his word, and we see today as tangible progress in our efforts to achieve peace on the Korean peninsula", Pence said Wednesday. The two sides remain technically at war because a peace treaty was never signed.
It wasn't the first time Trump has suggested that China was relaxing pressure on North Korea amid the simmering trade dispute.
A cut-off of oil and fuel would require enforcement primarily by China, which supplies most of North Korea's energy needs, but also by Russian Federation, which delivers some oil to Pyongyang.
More than 35,000 Americans were killed on the Korean Peninsula during the war and around 7,700 of them are still considered missing, including 5,300 in North Korea alone.
