Summit bears fruit as South Korea flies tangerines to North

Kim’s prized mushrooms safe to eat Seoul says after radiation test of North Korea gifts

While the Korean militaries move ahead with tension-reducing steps, Moon is otherwise running out of goodwill gestures toward North Korea, which is under heavy USA -led sanctions over its nuclear weapons program.

Bases for strategic weapons such as intercontinental ballistic missiles - whose development is the subject of sanctions - are located deep inside the country.

President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

In July, The Washington Post said U.S. intelligence agencies have found that North Korea is building new missiles, based on satellite photographs taken at the time and other new evidence.

The bases, which are located in "mountainous terrain, often spread out within narrow dead-end valleys", they write, could be used to deploy mobile missile launchers, which would be extremely hard for other nations to track and stop before the missiles could be fired.

The findings come amid a stalemate in denuclearization talks between the US and North Korea. "If the second summit blows up, then maybe we see a resumption of testing and fire and fury". "I have talked with the administration and basically what we're looking at is they postponed it because they weren't ready".

A month later, experts said North Korea had stopped dismantling a different rocket test site, also based on satellite photographs taken at the time and other sources. US analysts say they have located more than half of an estimated 20 secret North Korean missile development facilities. This apparently was at the behest of North Korea, as they wanted to keep a post that Kim Jong-un had visited in 2013.

"What North Korea has offered is the beginning of a process that might - might - someday lead to an outcome like that".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's planned meeting with his North Korean counterpart in NY on Thursday was postponed at the last minute.

Less than 24 hours before Pompeo was scheduled to travel to NY for those meetings, the State Department announced they had been postponed because of a scheduling conflict.

IN a bid to soften tensions along their heavily-fortified frontier, North and South Korea began destroying 20 guard posts, signalling warming ties between the two estranged neighbours.

He vowed to work towards denuclearisation during his historic June summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, but Pyongyang's actions have fallen short of U.S. demands for irreversible steps to scrap its arsenal, including a full disclosure of nuclear facilities and materials.

U.S. analysts say they have located more than half of an estimated 20 secret North Korean missile-development sites, highlighting the challenge the Trump administration faces in ensuring North Korea complies with any eventual agreement to end its nuclear and missile programs.

The facilities identified in the new report are located in strategic locations that would put missiles in range of South Korea and Japan, according to the report.

However, he added, the report could also make the current stalemate between Washington and Pyongyang last "longer than expected".
