    Washington, June 30: Despite US President Donald Trump claiming that North Korea no more posed nuclear threat, the American intelligence believes that Pyongyang has raised it fuel production for nuclear weapons at several secret sites in recent times and that the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un, might try to conceal those facilities in an effort to secure concessions from Washington, official sources in the US told NBC News.

    North Korea raised N-production at secret sites: report

    The report said the new intelligence assessment which has not been reported earlier, seemed to contradict Trump's hope expressed after his historic summit with Kim in Singapore on June 12 that Pyongyang was no longer a threat the world was afraid of.

    However, there have been viewpoints doing rounds in the US that the Kim regime was playing a double game by showing its intent to denuclearise upfront but carrying on with its sinister designs stealthily. Analysts in the CIA and other intelligence agencies feel that Pyongyang was trying every possible trick to extract concessions from the US even while pursuing dreams of possessing the nuclear weapons.

    In May, Pyongyang also invited foreign journalists to witness the official dismantling of its only nuclear site Pungyye-ri but even that has not convinced experts about the former's intention.
