Recall, June 12 in Singapore, a meeting of US President Donald Trump and the leader of the DPRK. Following the talks, the parties signed a joint document, under which the DPRK assumed obligations for denuclearization in response to the security guarantees provided by the United States. Among other things, the DPRK promised the United States to eliminate the landfill, where Hwasong-15 intercontinental missiles were tested.
A month later, information began to appear in the media that North Korea had not abandoned plans for the production of ballistic missiles. Thus, the sources of the newspaper The Washington Post said that the DPRK is working on the production of at least two new intercontinental ballistic missiles. The agency “Ronhap” reported that North Korea is developing a “new high-tech weapons.” On the eve of the experts of the American Center for Strategic and International Studies, the United States concluded that North Korea has a secret military base on which the Hwasong-10 medium-range ballistic missiles are based.
The second summit between US President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong-un will take place on February 27–28 in the capital of Vietnam.
