North Korea 'poised to conduct new missile test', satellite images show

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

They noted that the activity has continued despite Trump's conciliatory words about Kim since the Hanoi summit, and a United States decision to cancel annual large-scale exercises with South Korea that the North has objected to.

"The president's obviously open to talking again". While efforts to force North Korea to scrap its nuclear weapons have hit a snag, Trump wants to take the credit for at least getting the North to halt test launches of long-range missiles.

"We're going to study the situation carefully".

"I inherited a mess with North Korea", Trump added.

Trump said on Friday that his relationship with Kim "remains good", despite the setback in Hanoi.

Asked if the two sides had reached an agreed-upon definition, the official said they "have the elements of one".

The February 27-28 summit between Trump and Kim ended without a joint statement or any agreement on North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

The 2.1-magnitude quake struck in the mining town of Pyonggang - near the North's border with South Korea - at about noon on Thursday, local time (3am GMT). "We'll see", he said. "That's our goal and that's how we see these negotiations picking up momentum".

Soviet-style Communist states had a long tradition of holding general elections, he said, even if the ruling party ignored its own rules about holding regular congresses - something the North skipped for more than 30 years.

"We are watching in real-time developments at Sohae and we will definitely be seeking clarification on the purposes of that", he said.

Spy chief Suh Hoon told the lawmakers he viewed the activity as missile-related, the JoongAng Ilbo said.

The Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies has published similar findings and says the North's actions amount to a "snapback" from the moderate dismantlement it undertook following the first Trump-Kim summit last June.

Meanwhile, a US -based think tank has said it appears the North is rebuilding its ballistic missile test facility, which it had partially dismantled.

A State Department official told the Wall Street Journal that the US doesn't know why there were works at the site and noted that the situation is being monitored.

North Korea appears poised to conduct new missile or rockets tests after satellite imagery showed renewed activity at a missile factory and a known launch site.

He said it was impossible to know if North Korea was preparing a military missile or a space rocket.

The appointment of Kim Yeon-chul, a staunch backer of Korean reconciliation, may further improve ties with the North, officials said.

Some analysts see the work as aimed at pressing Washington to agree to a deal, rather than as a definite move to resume tests.

The Hanoi summit broke down due to disputes over US-led sanctions on North Korea.

"We're seeing a lot of vehicle activity at the Sanumdong facility and also at the rail transfer point where it would be loaded and taken to Sohae", said Lewis, who has studied the images. "There is no evidence to suggest anything more than that".

The Ministry of Unification handles relations with North Korea. "And we'll look at ramping those sanctions up, in fact". While the USA and South Korea have canceled their annual large-scale war games, Washington is poised to consider strengthening its sanctions on Pyongyang unless progress is made on denuclearization.

The high-stakes meeting in Vietnam was supposed to build on the leaders' historic first summit in Singapore a year ago, but ended without any agreement on walking back North Korea's nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief.

With no deal between the two nations looking likely, the United States delegation left early - later insisting further talks could be thrashed out.
