In an apparent departure from its commitment to mothball its nuclear and missile programs, North Korea might be building new ballistic projectiles as claimed by unnamed U.S. officials citing images captured by America’s spy satellites.

The activity at the Sanumdong facility near the capital, Pyongyang, lays credence to recent reports from various media outlets claiming that the North is pressing ahead with missile development, nullifying whatever progress was made at the historic June summit, writes the BBC.

The revelation comes at a time when the two Koreas are holding military talks aimed at chalking out the path for defusing tensions and “all hostile acts,” notes Reuters.
