New satellite pictures obtained by 2 Investigates show continuous construction of a large underground facility that has been kept under wraps and located roughly seven miles away from the known Yeongjeo-dong site. But diplomacy has since come to a halt amid disputes over a USA demand that North Korea first produce a full inventory of its nuclear weapons and take other denuclearization steps before winning significant outside rewards. He later closed his country's only known nuclear test site and offered to demolish a stand for testing missile engines.

But while Trump maintains that Kim committed to fully denuclearize during their summit in Singapore this summer, the truth is that the meeting only yielded a vaguely worded agreement, in which the two leaders pledged to build a "lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula" and to "work toward complete denuclearization" of the peninsula.

But Kim has yet to clarify whether and when he might dismantle his nuclear warheads and delivery missiles.

The report said that the site's unique location would be ideal for North Korea's newest long-range missiles, including those that can carry nuclear weapons that could strike the United States.

Requests to visit that site and other missile sites were denied by leader Kim Jong Un, violating an agreement to end North Korea's missile program.

"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.

A series of United Nations resolutions require North Korea to give up its ballistic missile program.

"North Korea and the United States appear to be making headway", a high-ranking South Korean government source told the Hankyoreh paper. But Washington wants the North to commit first to a detailed road map for full and verifiable denuclearization, starting with the declaration of all its nuclear weapons and fissile materials.

Despite the initial optimism generated by Kim and Trump's June summit meeting in Singapore, little has transpired since then. On Saturday, he told reporters that his next meeting with Kim was likely to happen in January or February.
