Trump hails start of dismantling N. Korean missile site
KANSAS CITY, July 24, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – US President Donald Trump welcomed
Tuesday reports that North Korea has started dismantling facilities at its
main satellite launch station, which is seen as a testing ground for
intercontinental ballistic missiles.
New satellite imagery shows “that North Korea has begun the process of
dismantling a key missile site, and we appreciate that,” Trump said during an
event in Kansas City, Missouri.
“We had a fantastic meeting with Chairman Kim and it seems to be going very
well,” Trump added, referring to his summit last month with North Korean
leader Kim Jong Un.
US-based website 38 North published imagery Monday indicating that
Pyongyang has begun taking down a processing building and a rocket-engine
test stand that had been used to test liquid-fuel engines at its Sohae
Satellite Launching Station.
