U.S. spy satellites have detected renewed activity at the North Korean factory that produced the country’s first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States, according to a senior U.S. official.

Despite talks with the U.S. and a wide pledge to denuclearize, North Korea might still be making missiles.

U.S. spy satellites show there's been new activity at a key North Korean factory - the very one where Pyongyang produced its first long-range ballistic missiles.

That's all according to a senior U.S. official, who says photos showed trucks going in and out of the building, the same kind they used to move their missiles, but that it's not clear how advanced any missile construction might be.

The Washington Post on Monday (July 30) had more details, saying that North Korea appeared to be building new liquid-fueled missiles.

It's the latest evidence that points to ongoing weapons development in the North, that's despite a declaration from U.S. President Donald Trump, that Pyongyang no longer poses a nuclear threat.

Even after his summit with Kim Jong Un in June, North Korea so far hasn't offered any details on how it might denuclearize and talks afterwards haven't gone very smoothly.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last week that the North was continuing to produce fuel for nuclear bombs, but insisted the administration was making progress in talks.
