President Trump reportedly appreciates DPRK’s apparent moves to dismantle missile test site

Wednesday evening’s Asahi, Yomiuri, and Nikkei reported on remarks made by President Trump in Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday, during which he commented on a report released by 38 North saying that new satellite imagery indicates that the DPRK has begun dismantling key facilities at the Sohae satellite launching station. The papers wrote that the President reportedly said that he “appreciates” the apparent move by North Korea, adding that nuclear talks with Pyongyang are going “very well.” The papers added that Secretary of State Pompeo reportedly said on Tuesday that North Korea’s reported activity at the satellite launching station is consistent with the commitment made by Chairman Kim at his summit with President Trump in Singapore on June 12. Yomiuri wrote that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga commented on North Korea’s possibly starting to dismantle the missile test site by saying that Japan hopes that the move will lead to concrete actions toward denuclearization.
