North Korea has reportedly expanded a long-range missile base within its mountainous interior, despite a promise from Donald Trump the country was “no longer a threat”. 


Satellite images obtained by CNNallegedly show Pyongyang has continued to maintain and update its Yeongjeo-dong missile base and another site nearby. 

US officials have long known about the Yeongjeo-dong base, but images show construction on a new facility seven miles away not previously made public, the US news channel reported. 

“Satellite images show that the base remains active. Moreover, in the past year North Korea has significantly expanded a nearby facility that appears to be another missile base,” the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIISM) said in a report seen by CNN.

The images reportedly suggest the large underground facility was being built in 2017 and workers were continuing construction as of August this year.

In June, Mr Trump claimed the world could “now feel much safer” following his summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
