Seven months ago, President Trump announced, via a series of tweets, that the nuclear threat from North Korea had finally been removed. But, per Yaron Steinbuch of the New York Post, as many as 20 undisclosed missile bases have recently been found in the country, somewhat contradicting the president’s claims and leading some to worry.

One of these newfound sites acts as the headquarters for the country’s Strategic Rocket Forces- a military branch that oversees North Korea’s nuclear and conventionally strategic missiles.

Among the findings is the Sino-ri Missile Operating Base- a base that has played a vital factor in developing ballistic missiles that can reach South Korea, Guam, and Japan- which was not revealed in previous discussions with the United States.

But there were at least 19 other bases found, where ballistic missiles are being developed, that were not revealed over negotiations last year.

“The North Koreans are not going to negotiate over things they don’t disclose,” said Victor Cha, one of the report’s authors. “It looks like they’re playing a game. They’re still going to have all this operational capability,” even if they destroy their disclosed nuclear facilities.

This begs the question of whether North Korea is still a nuclear threat, even after President’s Trump’s previous claims. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan believes they are a “significant threat.”

In a government report from two weeks ago labeled the Missile Defense Review, the president addressed where the country stands regarding missile defense:

“Our goal is simple: To ensure we can detect and destroy any missile launched against the United States — anywhere, anytime, anyplace.”

In this same account, North Korea was one of four nations viewed as a major nuclear threat to the U.S. The report continued:

“While a possible new avenue to peace now exists with North Korea, it continues to pose an extraordinary threat and the United States must remain vigilant.”

Trump has made efforts to end the nuclear threat from the rogue regime, and to continue to act on this goal, he is expected to meet North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un for a second denuclearization summit after meeting with North Korea’s leading negotiator Kim Yong Choi.

“President Donald J. Trump met with Kim Yong Chol for an hour and half, to discuss denuclearization and a second summit, which will take place near the end of February,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “The president looks forward to meeting with Chairman Kim at a place to be announced at a later date.”

The newest findings will undoubtedly be a topic of discussion when the two nations eventually meet. Read more about it on NY Post here.
