Two U.S. think tanks and South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency have reported that work is under way to restore part of North Korea’s Sohae Satellite Launching Station. Last June, North Korea began to dismantle a missile engine test stand at Sohae after the first summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and its leader Kim Jong-un. A second summit broke down last week in Hanoi over differences on how far North Korea was willing to limit its nuclear programme and the degree of U.S. willingness to ease sanctions. The structures had been rebuilt some time between February 16 and March 2, Reuters reported.
