Researchers find 20 secret missile sites in North Korea

Researchers discovers TWENTY secret ballistic missile sites in North Korea

Kim Joon-rak, a spokesman for South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the South Korean and USA militaries had been monitoring Sino-ri and other undeclared missile bases. The details came to light as nuclear envoys for the U.S., North Korea and South Korea held talks at a resort outside Stockholm, the Associated Press reported, citing the Swedish foreign ministry.

Concurrently, there was a sudden thaw in North Korea's relations with South Korea, with their own summit between Kim and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in.

That only raised more questions because so little progress has been made toward the U.S.'s ultimate goal - getting North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons - since the first meeting between Trump and Kim.

Experts have revealed an undeclared site that reportedly serves as the headquarters of one of North Korea's ballistic missile programmes, weeks before the country's leader, Kim Jong-un, and Donald Trump are expected to meet to discuss denuclearisation.

Marvel, too, joined the club with Ryan Coogler's " Black Panther ", the first superhero movie ever nominated for best picture . Stars like Gaga and Sam Sam Elliott, who earned a nod for supporting actor, have raved about working with the young director.

May be this will feature in another summit, though Trump seems to insist that Pyongyang must denuclearize before sanctions against North Korea are lifted.

U.S. and North Korean officials appear to have met in Sweden, following the announcement by the United States of a second summit next month.

The Japanese government said last Saturday that it welcomes the scheduled second US-North Korea summit, and hopes the meeting will produce tangible results toward achieving denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Last Wednesday during a meeting in Washington with U.S. ambassadors and charge d'affaires, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said that the Trump White House was still awaiting "concrete steps" by the North to dismantle nuclear weapons that threaten its people and allies in the region.

Israel strikes Iranian targets in Syria
Israel has pledged to stop its main enemy Iran from entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria. The location of the reported incident in the early hours of Monday was not immediately clear.

The Beyond Parallel report identified the Sino-ri Missile Operating Base, which has never been declared by Kim Jong Un's regime.

While missile operating bases would presumably be subject to declaration, verification, and dismantlement in any denuclearization deal, the Sino-ri base does not appear to be the subject of current denuclearization negotiations, according to the report. "It looks like they're playing a game".

Sino-ri is one of the oldest of those sites but is still operational today.

The special US envoy for North Korea negotiations, Steve Biegun, planned to travel to Sweden for further talks over the weekend. "Looking forward to meeting with Chairman Kim at the end of February!" "They're still going to have all this operational capability", even if they destroy their disclosed nuclear facilities.

Phillips said Sandmann "positioned himself" in front of him, stopping his exit. "I stepped in between to pray", Mr Phillips said. After the incident, Mr Phillips was quoted by U.S. media as saying: "I heard them saying " build that wall , build that wall" .

On the other hand, Harry Kazianis of the Center for the National Interest suggested the second Trump-Kim summit could present an opportunity to "flesh out a comprehensive, integrated agreement" on denuclearization, as opposed to the vague promises that followed the first summit in Singapore.
