‘N. Korea dismantling test facilities’

Satellite images indicate that North Korea has begun dismantling key facilities at a site used to develop engines for ballistic missiles, a first step toward fulfilling a pledge made to U.S. President Donald Trump, a Washington-based think tank said on Monday.

The July 20 images showed work at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station to dismantle a building used to assemble space-launch vehicles and a nearby rocket engine test stand used to develop liquid-fuel engines, the 38 North think tank said.

Jenny Town, managing editor of 38 North, said the work at Sohae could be an important move to keep negotiations going.
