Is North Korea preparing for a missile or satellite launch?

Trump ‘disappointed’ by North Korean missile activity reports following breakdown of nuclear talks

But the meeting broke down over an impasse regarding how many sites North Korea would shut down. She did not elaborate on what the developments were.

Trump said he would be "very, very disappointed" if the reports proved true.

US President Donald Trump says he would be disappointed if North Korea was to resume weapons testing. Unless re-elected, Trump's term will end in January 2021.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has offered to return to North Korea to help restart negotiations on denuclearization, as progress has come to a standstill between Pyongyang and the administration of President Donald Trump.

Now Trump is sending Kim a warning amid signs of resumed activity at Tongchang-ri just two days after their summit in Hanoi ended abruptly without an agreement. The North Korean media and officials though celebrated his longest-ever foreign trip which he made in a train and viewed the summit as secondary.

The documentary shows a smiling Kim talking with Trump while walking together inside a Hanoi hotel last week.

The US State Department has declined to comment. A few days later satellite imagery surfaced conveniently, showing unspecified "activity" at Sohae satellite launching site, which North Korea began to dismantle previous year.

Meanwhile, 38 North, a website specializing in North Korea studies, said commercial satellite imagery indicates the rebuilding started between February 16 and March 2. "We'll see", he said. "That's what we are working for", he said.

Huawei is suing the USA government
Only 30 per cent of Huawei's equipment comes directly from Huawei, he said, while the rest comes from the global supply chain. According to the White House, Huawei devices can be exploited by the Chinese government to spy on USA citizens.

Joel Wit at 38 North said of the Sanumdong images: "It could either be preparation for an eventual launch or not". "We'll see when that might be scheduled or how it might work out". "It's a space launch facility and has been used to send satellites into space".

Earlier on Tuesday, two US-based websites specialising in North Korea studies cited commercial satellite imagery as indicating that North Korea is rebuilding some structures at its northwestern rocket launch facility.

China is North Korea's most important economic and diplomatic backer, and has suggested easing United Nations sanctions on North Korea as a way to reward it for its improved behaviour.

Activity has been spotted at the missile assembly site.

Trump and Kim, who also met in Singapore previous year, have not said if there will be a third summit.

"The Chinese saw him walk away from North Korea and they're concerned he will walk away from the China deal", the official said.

The failed summit was a blow for Moon, who had hoped US sanctions relief would boost South-North projects including a factory park, tourism zone and railway network. But he added: "The differences have been narrowed". South Korea says new missile-related activity has been detected at the site but its exact objective remains unclear. The exercises were replaced with a shorter exercise that kicked off this week in South Korea to criticism from the North. "Without that formal commitment, North Korea might claim it is doing nothing wrong and derail the fragile diplomatic process underway".
