North Korea may build new intercontinental ballistic missiles and continue “business as usual” within its missile program, an official for Fox News said. This is in the context of Kim Jong-un’s statement on the cessation of the production of nuclear weapons and President Trump’s assurance that “the hermit kingdom no longer represents a nuclear threat.”
“There is absolutely nothing new and surprising here,” an official representative of the US, who has the latest intelligence information about North Korea, told Fox News on Tuesday. The official emphasized that the Kim regime is moving ahead in the construction of ICBMs – missiles, due to which North Korea was subjected to strong sanctions.
On Monday, the Washington Post reported that satellite images indicate that North Korea may be building two ICBMs on the same site where the first long-range missiles were launched, including Hwasong-15, which are able to fly to the East Coast of the United States.
Officials told the paper, on condition of anonymity, that North Korea’s intention was to deceive the US by showing the wrong number of warheads, as well as to produce research facilities that were allegedly completely defused.
