New satellite tv for pc photographs point out that North Korea is demolishing the check stand for intercontinental ballistic missiles at Iha-ri, simply 16 months after the ability was first used for a check launch.

Solid-fuel missiles can be fired at shorter notice and more discreetly than those powered by liquid fuel.

Jeffrey Lewis, a North Korea specialist at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif., tweeted that the test stand was used to test missile cold ejections, not for flight tests.

Analysis of the satellite imagery was carried out by North Korea expert Joseph Bermudez and published by 38 North.

More news: Canada will retaliate against USA tariffs: Justin Trudeau

In a sign of goodwill, North Korea last month also demolished tunnels and buildings at its nuclear test site in the country's remote northeast and provided rare access to foreign journalists.

The site was used to conduct the first launch of the Pugkuksong-2 medium-range ballistic missile on February 13, 2017.

In April, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced he was suspending ballistic missile and nuclear testing, paving the way for negotiations on its nuclear weapons program with the United States that will culminate in a historic summit next week in Singapore with U.S. President Donald Trump. South Korean officials suspected that a North Korean missile that exploded shortly after takeoff from the east coast in April past year may also have been a Pukguksong-2 missile.

"It is unclear whether the destruction of the stand is an indication that the North is suspending this portion of its missile programme or that Pyongyang plans to erect other similar facilities in the future", it noted. The statement was seen as the first step toward North's denuclearization.
