Missile Bases in North Korea – level 3

29-01-2019 07:00

Donald Trump and Kim Kim Jong-un signed a vague denuclearisation agreement in June, but there has been no evidence of North Korea disassembling its missile program.

Furthermore, Beyond Parallel looked into North Korea. Beyond Parallel is a self-described ‘non-partisan or authoritative analytic’ project that the Centre for Strategic and International Studies sponsors.

The project found a secret operational ballistic missile base in North Korea. The report says that this one is one of the oldest bases, and one of about 20 undeclared missile operating bases in the country. In the past, the base reportedly housed medium-range ballistic missiles and ‘figured prominently in the historical development of the North Korean force.’

The report comes ahead of a planned second meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in February, which people expect to take place somewhere in Vietnam.

Difficult words: vague (not specific), non-partisan (not a part of a political group/country), prominent (important).
