Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 13 (ANI): New images from a commercial satellite have revealed that North Korea has multiple undeclared operating missile bases.
This comes after North Korea recently postponed high-level talks with United States on the denuclearisation of Korean peninsula.
The images indicate that North Korea is moving forward with its ballistic missile program amid international pressure from countries like South Korea and the US, reported CNN.
The existence of these undeclared bases has been known to the US intelligence agencies but US President Donald Trump has never openly acknowledged their existence or his knowledge of it.
Following his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June, Trump had said that Pyongyang is "no longer a nuclear threat."
The first summit between Trump and Kim was held on June 12 in Singapore, which saw the two sides signing a joint declaration.
The North Korean leader assured, "complete denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula", while the US President pledged "security guarantees" to North Korea. (ANI)
