Just weeks after the Singapore summit, Kim Jong Un visited new monument to ICBMs
Opened in February last year, the facility has yet to be featured in official state media
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on July 4, 2018 visited a monument celebrating the country’s Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test-fire, NK Pro understands from multiple informed sources.
Kim’s visit to the monument – which took place around three weeks after his historic meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore and his nominal commitment to work towards denuclearization – has never been reported by North Korea’s state media.
Informed sources who visited the site told NK Pro that official DPRK guides there on multiple occasions told visitors about a Kim Jong Un visit
