North Korea is reportedly making new missiles in the same factory that produced the country's first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of targeting the United States of America, senior U.S. intelligence sources claim.
U.S. intelligence officials familiar Pyongyang's operations say that new evidence, including recent satellite photos, suggest the regime is producing at least one liquid-fueled ICBM at a research facility.
According to the US official who spoke to Reuters, one photo showed a truck and covered trailer similar to those the North has used to move its ICBMs.
"We see shipping containers and vehicles coming and going".
Asked about the report, the Pentagon declined to comment.
More than 50 boxes handed over by North Korea to the United States last week appear to hold human remains from the 1950-1953 Korean War and are likely American, according to an initial forensic analysis, a US official said on Wednesday.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also vowed during his summit with US President Donald Trump last month to work towards denuclearisation, but there has not been a concrete agreement to accomplish that goal.
At the United Nations, the United States asked a UN sanctions committee to halt all deliveries of refined oil products to North Korea after accusing Pyongyang of using illegal imports to exceed a cap on permissible deliveries.

Trump calls Republicans 'weak' for not marching in lockstep on trade
The Trump administration has slapped tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods in a dispute over Beijing's high-tech industrial policies.
"The remains received from North Korea are being handled with the utmost care and respect by professional historians, forensic scientists, uniformed personnel and government officials", the U.S. -led U.N. Command said in a statement. Their strategy includes potentially asserting that they have fully denuclearized by declaring and disposing of 20 warheads while retaining dozens more. Any work by North Korea on new missiles suggests an expansion of its nuclear capabilities, I would have thought.
"However, the attitude and stance the United States showed in the first high-level meeting (between the countries) was no doubt regrettable", the spokesman said.
During the meeting, Indonesia welcomed the participation of joint North and South Korean teams at the Asian Games, which Puan said could strengthen friendship and further peace efforts on the Korean Peninsula, according to a statement from the Indonesian Embassy in Pyongyang.
"There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea". "But then they'll say, 'The next ones, we need to find them, locate them, restore them.' And then they'll start charging". The US military presence in South Korea is the backbone of its security commitment to South Korea, which doesn't' have nuclear weapons.
The North Koreans "never agreed to give up their nuclear program", said Ken Gause, a North Korea expert at the Center for Naval Analysis.
However, officials did note to the Washington Post that another launch facility - the Sohae Satellite Launching Station on the West Coast - was being partially dismantled. "But even if they are, you still have a nuclear deterrent, so it would still be a huge risk for the U.S.to try to attack".
But Trump now faces criticism at home and elsewhere that North Korea hasn't taken any serious steps toward disarmament and may be trying to buy time to weaken worldwide sanctions against it.
