North Korea expanding missile development facilities, says report

by Gabriel Dominguez

North Korea has been expanding its facilities for missile research and development but has shown no unusual signs at its demolished nuclear testing site or its long-suspended plutonium-producing reactor, the Yonhap News Agency reported on 17 February.

The media outlet cited a report from South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) as saying that no special movement has been spotted since May 24, 2018, when the North demolished the Punggyeri nuclear test site. The 5-megawatt nuclear reactor at the Yongbyon nuclear complex has long been suspended.
