Yongbyon is the only publicly known complex where North

Korea produces fissile material for nuclear weapons, but experts

have long believed North Korea operates a series of covert sites that contribute to its ballistic mis

sile and nuclear weapons program.
Trump appeared to hint at the existence at least one of those during his news con

ference following the Hanoi summit, a second uranium enrichment plant. South Korean lawmaker Lee Eun-jae’s off

ice said that an “additional uranium facility” was discussed during the Hanoi summit.

While it’s unclear what or where this site is, a tea

m of North Korea open-source analysts published findings in the online news site The Diplomat in July revealing a c

overt uranium enrichment facility which the US government calls Kangsong.

CNN’s Zachary Cohen, Yoonjung Seo, Will Ripley and Sophie Jeong contributed to this report

Without mutual trust, neither the US will accept the

demand for lifting the sanctions at one go, nor will Pyongyang dismantle all its nuclear facilit

ies and destroy its nuclear weapons in compliance with Washington’s demand.

Perhaps this lack of mutual trust prevented Kim and Trump from signing any agreem

ents at their second summit. Or maybe they didn’t sign any agreements because the two sides had not m

ade good preparations to reach consensuses on even very important issues.

With no agreements planned in advance, all the problems were left for the two leaders to dis

cuss and decide. And even if the two leaders have formed a good personal friendship, as Trump claimed, th

ey cannot be expected to compromise their countries’ positions on complicated historical issues.

Yet the second summit cannot be regarded as a failure, especia

lly because the Trump administration has left room for further talks with Pyongyang.
