DONALD Trump declared victory after North Korea pledged to “work towards” denuclearisation, but satellite images show the world might have been fooled.
NORTH Korea has been making rapid improvements to its nuclear research facility — despite Kim Jong-un’s pledge to denuclearise during his summit with President Donald Trump, the New York Post reports.
The dictator promised to “work toward” the goal at the June 12 summit with President Trump in Singapore, which produced a vaguely worded agreement that provided few details about the rogue regime’s commitment.
Mr Trump — who declared on Twitter that there was “no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea” — claimed the process would start quickly, saying “it will be a total denuclearisation, which is already taking place.”
Jenny Town, managing editor of respected website 38 North, wrote on Twitter: “Infrastructure improvements continue at Yongbyon. Underscores reason why an actual deal is necessary, not just a statement of lofty goals.”
Recent satellite imagery showed that not only were operations continuing at present at the Yongbyon nuclear site, the North also was carrying out infrastructure works, according to 38 North.
