North Korea has almost completed rebuilding a long-range rocket site it had promised to close, Seoul lawmakers told reporters Friday.

North Korea has almost completed rebuilding a long-range rocket site it had promised to close, Seoul lawmakers told reporters Friday.

The claim comes after a closed-door meeting with South Korean intelligence officials, a month after a second summit between U.NNS.President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in February ended without an agreement, deepening the gap between the two sides on how to achieve "complete denuclearization.""

Shortly after the end of the Hanoi summit, a series of satellite images emerged suggesting increased activity at the North's Sohae rocket site, triggering international alarm that the nuclear-armed state might be preparing a long-range or space launch.

"North has begun rebuilding the center, which was partially dismantled last July, ahead of North-U.NNS.summit in February," lawmaker Kim Min-ki told reporters after a closed-door meeting of the National Intelligence Service.

“The work is almost done with some maintenance underway,” he said.

North Korea has been banned by the United States.N.Security Council from performing launches into space, as some of its technology is similar to that used for intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs.

But earlier this month, the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) said there was "intentional and intentional" activity. taking place at the Sohae missile site.

Seoul's latest assessment Friday may suggest a policy reversal by Kim, who agreed to shut down the Sohae site at a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Pyongyang last year.

Experts have warned a launch of any kind would throw denuclearization talks into turmoil.

Moon Chung-in, the president's special adviser on national security, said the outcome would be "catastrophic.""

The nuclear-armed state is also "operating uranium enrichment facilities" at its Yongbyon nuclear complex, the lawmaker added.

After the summit in Hanoi, Pyongyang and Washington both sought to blame the other's indecision for the stalemate.

Pyongyang says it has offered to dismantle the Yongbyon complex - a vast site comprising various facilities - in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions that have strangled and isolated the North.

However, US officials said it was unclear exactly what facilities at the Yongbyon complex North Korea was willing to give up, while Trump said that "weapons themselves should be on the table". .
