Soon after a second summit on denuclearisation between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un North Korea has restored part of a missile launch site it began to dismantle after first summit with U.S. President Donald Trump last year.
South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency and two U.S. think tanks have reported structures on the launch pad had been rebuilt during the last two weeks. Meanwhile, the US National Security Adviser John Bolton has said that Washington will look at ramping up sanctions on North Korea if Pyongyang does not scrap its nuclear program.
In an interview, he said if they are not willing to do it, they are not going to get relief from the crushing economic sanctions. “If they’re not willing to do it, then I think President Trump has been very clear … they’re not going to get relief from the crushing economic sanctions that have been imposed on them and we’ll look at ramping those sanctions up in fact,” said Bolton, a hardliner who has advocated a tough approach to North Korea in the past.
