Two Koreas hold military talks as US suspects activity at missile factory

North and South Korea held military talks today after suspicion between the pariah state and the US appeared to grow following detection of renewed activity at one of its missile factories.

The meeting followed a historic summit in June in which the two Koreas made "new history" as they vowed to end decades of conflict and political impasse.

After weeks of wrangling, the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un last month met the US president, Donald Trump, and agreed to work towards denuclearisation, though he offered no concrete agreement to reach the goal.

Today Reuters reported that progress could be further derailed after a senior US official told the agency that spy satellites had detected renewed activity at the North Korean factory that produced the countrys first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States.
