New reports indicate that missiles in North Korea are being moved from a government rocket facility in Pyongyang to an undisclosed location. Some experts believe the rogue nation may be gearing up for another missile test, according to a new report from Reuters.
Late Friday night, the outlet reported that South Korea’s Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) spotted the military moving the weapons, but the report did not reveal where the missiles were taken.
According to the report, the missiles were moved from the Missile Research and Development Facility at Sanum-dong in the northern part of Pyongyang. South Korean officials reportedly fear North Korea may attempt another missile test around Oct. 10, which in the anniversary of the founding of North Korea’s ruling Communist Party.
Reuters reported: “The missiles could be either intermediate range Hwasong-12 or intercontinental ballistic Hwasong-14 missiles, according to the report, though the missile facility at Sanum-dong has been dedicated to the production of intercontinental ballistic missiles.”
Last Saturday, speaking at the United Nations General Assembly, North Korea’s foreign minister Ri Yong Ho said that recent economic sanctions placed on his country by the UN and the United States will do very little to deter his country’s plans to develop a nuclear force capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.
The minister also called President Donald J. Trump “a mentally deranged person full of megalomania” and promised that provocations from the U.S. make “our rocket’s visit to the entire US mainland inevitable all the more.”
The same day, the U.S. displayed a show of force as bombers and fighter jets buzzed North Korea, heading north of the Demilitarized Zone; the farthest north in that area any aircraft has flown in this century. According to U.S. Pacific Command, “The mission was flown as part of the continuing demonstration of the ironclad U.S. commitment to the defense of its homeland and in support of its partners and allies.”
This Saturday, the Trump administration revealed that they currently have open communication with Pyonyang.
“We are probing, so stay tuned,” Tillerson reportedly said, speaking at the residence of the United States ambassador to Beijing after a meeting with China’s top leadership. “We have lines of communications to Pyongyang — we’re not in a dark situation, a blackout.”
He then said the U.S. has three lines of communication with North Korea.
