President Trump met with Kim Jong Un during the historic Singapore Summit last June; pressing the communist leader to officially and permanently abandon his nuclear and missile weapons programs.
Researchers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, who analyzed the satellite imagery, said this is the first time the Hoejung-ri site has been publicly identified, describing the work being done there as "significant".
"That's why I think the president thinks that another summit is likely to be productive", Bolton said during the Wall Street Journal's CEO conference.
"Under President Trump, we are not abandoning worldwide leadership or our friends in the global system", Pompeo said in a speech at the German Marshall Fund.
Wait.haven't we heard this before?
"Meeting Kim again only validates Kim's strategy of using Trump to play for time and sanctions relief, and keep North Korea on the pathway to becoming a de facto nuclear weapon state", Medeiros told The New York Times.
The latest CNN analysis is in addition to these past reports.
Members of the Kim dynasty have promised that they would denuclearize and then backtracked on six separate occasions in 1985, 1992, 1994, 2005, 2007, and 2012.

People lie, satellite images don't-hence why the US and South Korea are closely monitoring a new suspected missile site near North Korea's central border with China.
Trump and other administration officials have said sanctions against North Korea should remain in place until a deal is finalized.
Pence spoke days after the release of additional new commercial satellite images identifying more than a dozen undeclared North Korean missile operating bases, another sign that Pyongyang is continuing to move forward with its ballistic missile program.
Kim announced the dismantlement of a nuclear facility at another site in Nyongbyon at a summit with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in in September.
That missile was considered by some experts to be capable of reaching any part of the continental United States, although North Korea is not yet believed to have the ability to deliver nuclear warheads on such missiles.
The base itself is strung along a narrow valley. "In front of the pair of drive throughs, there is a concrete pad that was also covered in dirt", according to the analysis by Lewis and Schmerler.
Researchers were able to locate five entrances to underground tunnels they said may be used to store missiles.
Many of these bases, including the Yeongjeo-dong facility, have been known to outside analysts.
