North Korea has been secretly enriching uranium in recent weeks. This must be evident from secret reports from the US military intelligence services reported by NBC News. Enriched uranium is used for the production of nuclear bombs.
According to Planet Blog, North Korea has only increased the production of enriched uranium at secret locations in recent months. The country would therefore still pose a nuclear threat, contrary to recent statements by US President Donald Trump.
The American news channel NBC News bases this claim on talks with a dozen US military personnel, who in turn would be aware of new reports from the US security services on North Korea.
According to these soldiers, the secret reports also state that North Korea not only enriches uranium at secret locations but also quickly works on fuel for nuclear bombs.
The messages come at an inopportune time for President Donald Trump, who had a historic meeting with the North Korean president Kim Jong-un on June 12 in Singapore. Trump called that meeting ‘extremely successful’ and has since declared that North Korea is ‘no longer a nuclear threat’. However, the findings of the US security services would show the contrary.
Trump even agreed to cancel a joint military exercise with South Korea for the time being, significant compensation for Pyongyang. Critics accused the American president of making that concession without making any gesture to the North Koreans.
‘It is true that the North Koreans are no longer carrying out nuclear tests, but there is no indication that they are reducing their existing stocks, or even that they have stopped producing new nuclear bombs’, says a US military NBC News. “There is irreconcilable evidence that North Korea is deceiving the United States.”
The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, is reportedly preparing a new trip to Pyongyang. In July he wants to continue the negotiations with the Kim regime. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Pompeo hopes to be able to move North Koreans to make concrete promises about denuclearisation, something that Trump did not manage before.
