US spy agencies have recently seen satellite photo evidence that North Korea is building at least two intercontinental ballistic missiles at the factory where it created its first missile that it said could reach the United States.
Satellite images show that North Korea is behaving like a country working hard on its missile program, not a country preparing to disarm, the Washington Post reports, citing "officials familiar with the intelligence".
But he insisted the Trump administration was still making progress in its talks with Pyongyang.

This will mark a breakthrough in a long-stalled US effort to obtain war remains from North Korea, but officials say it is unlikely to produce quick satisfaction for any of the families of the almost 7,700 USA servicemen who are still listed as missing and unaccounted for from the 1950-53 Korean War.
The Sanumdong factory produced two Hwasong-15 ICBMs, North Korea's furthest-reaching missile which can fly more than 13,000km, putting the the US East Coast within its reach. The remains will be analyzed in Hawaii to determine whether they are those of US service members missing since the Korean War. But since then, North Korea has made few tangible moves signaling an intention to disarm.
Trump last week thanked Kim for keeping the promise he made as part of their talks about North Korea's denuclearization.
Vice President Mike Pence, whose father fought in the Korean War, was scheduled to attend an "honorable carry ceremony" at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam to mark the arrival of the remains on USA soil. But there is a broad consensus among US intelligence agencies that Kangson is one of at least two secret enrichment plants.
"Regime survival and perpetuation of Kim family rule" are Kim's guiding principles, he said. "But even if they are, you still have a nuclear deterrent, so it would still be a huge risk for the U.S.to try to attack".
