A new report says North Korea looks to be constructing new missiles. 

The Washington Post cited unnamed officials who say new satellite images and other evidence show renewed activity at a facility outside of Pyongyang.

Those officials reportedly believe North Korea could be working on as many as two liquid-fueled intercontinental ballistic missiles at that site. 

This comes after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump met in June. Those unprecedented talks ending with Kim recommitting to "complete denuclearization."

Since then, North Korea hasn't provided any details for how it plans to get rid of its nuclear weapons. 

And while a North Korea monitoring group recently reported the country appears to be dismantling key facilities at a satellite launch station, there's also been reports about Pyongyang secretly producing fuel for nuclear weapons.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told lawmakers last week that the Trump administration is still aiming for North Korea to be completely denuclearized by the end of the president's first term.
