    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The US intelligence believes that North Korea is not going to fully destroy its nuclear arsenal and looking for the ways to conceal some of its weapons, US media reported.

    According to The Washington Post newspaper citing evidence collected after the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Pyongyang is not going to implement full denuclearization.

    The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) reportedly believes that North Korea is looking for the ways to conceal a number of nuclear warheads, missiles and facilities.

    Earlier this week, the NBC News broadcaster reported that North Korea continued work in secret nuclear facilities, for example on production of fuel for nuclear missiles.
