Are you concerned about North Korea?
by Axios | 12.21.19
North Korea has begun fresh work at a factory involved in the development and production of intercontinental ballistic missile launchers, satellite images show.
Why it matters: Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, said Saturday Pyongyang is expanding work at the March 16 Factory in Pyongsong, where North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "watched preparations" for the 2017 test of the Hwasong-15 missile, which was theoretically capable of reaching the U.S. mainland.
Between the lines: "The site makes trucks to transport and launch ICBMs, so this is a long-term development," Lewis told Axios via email. "But what it shows is that North Korea is broadly expanding its missile capabilities."
- Lewis posted images to Twitter satellite images taken from Planet Labs showing evidence of North Korea's developments.
