North Korea holds funeral for anti-colonial veteran Kim Chol Man

People lie, satellite images don't-hence why the US and South Korea are closely monitoring a new suspected missile site near North Korea's central border with China.

But a report by the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey said there had been construction on a new facility 7 miles away from the older Yeongjeo-dong site that had not been previously publicly identified. 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.

The revelation is yet another blow to President Donald Trump, who after first trying to face down North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and belittle him as a "Little Rocket Man" who would be met with "fire and fury", then sought to prove his dealmaking prowess by getting Kim to agree to denuclearization.

North Korea's "long-range missile bases expanding, even as a second summit with president Kim is in the works", Tapper said.

But National Security Adviser John Bolton said Tuesday that there should be another summit with Kim.

"That's why I think the president thinks that another summit is likely to be productive".

Bolton said the USA would press ahead with a second meeting shortly after the start of the new year - saying, "January, February" - in the hope of making further progress.

Since the Singapore meeting, talks between North Korea and the United States have stalled over how to eradicate the North's nuclear weapons program.

Hwang Pyong So, one of Kim Jong Un's top aides, was not present at the funeral, but a South Korean government official who spoke to South Korean paper Segye Ilbo said his absence does not hold "major significance".

"North Korea appears to have begun to expand the base significantly, starting with the construction of a new headquarters area in 2014", the report stated.

North Korea insists on taking steps toward denuclearization only if Washington takes "simultaneous" reciprocal actions, such as easing sanctions.

Bolton's comments Tuesday underscored the lack of progress the United States has made in moving North Korea closer to the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization Washington is seeking, and the concessions it has been making to Pyongyang, even as Trump has stressed the warmth of his relationship with Kim.

"This is one of the important locations in North Korea our military is monitoring in cooperation with the United States", Roh Jae-cheon, a South Korean military spokesman, said Thursday about the North Korean base. Additional tunnels were also found, as seen in satellite pictures, including a pair of large drive-through shelters capable of holding large ballistic missiles.
