South Korea on Thursday stated they have detected activity at a North Korean long-range missile facility.
According to Reuters, two South Korean newspapers, citing lawmakers briefed by the nation’s spy agency, reported movement around a factory on the outskirts of Pyongyang, according to Reuters.
That factory is the same one that produced the first North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles that could reach the U.S., the news service noted.
The Associated Press on Thursday wrote that South Korea’s military said it is monitoring nuclear and missile facilities in the north after the lawmakers’ briefing.
Additionally, a lawmaker who asked not to be identified told the AP they were told that vehicles were transporting supplies at the missile factory, but specifics were not provided.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump on Wednesday stated that he would be “very disappointed” if North Korea really had begun rebuilding a missile launch facility near the Chinese border.
Trump also said that North Korea’s move could hurt the nuclear agreement with its leader Kim Jong Un.
“I would be very, very disappointed in Chairman Kim,” the President told reporters at the White House. “I don’t think I will be, but we’ll see what happens.”
