I'd be 'very, very disappointed' if North Korea's rebuilding rocket site

That information comes from foreign observers and a South Korean lawmaker who spoke with the South's spy service.
The "Beyond Parallel" project at CSIS previously issued a string of reportsdescribing missile launch facilities well-known to South Korean and US intelligence but not formally declared by North Korea.
On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that even though there was "no commitment" from the North Koreans yet, he was "hopeful" that "we will be back at it, that I'll have a team in Pyongyang in the next couple weeks continuing to work to find those places where there is shared interest". It said satellite imagery taken Saturday, two days after the failed summit, showed North Korea "is pursuing a rapid rebuilding" of the rocket site.
"This facility had been dormant since August 2018, indicating the current activity is deliberate and purposeful", said researchers at the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). It said new roofs have been installed on the fuel and oxidizer buildings.
After repeated failures, North Korea successfully put a satellite into orbit for the first time in 2012 in a launch from the site, which is also known as the Sohae Satellite Launching Station. He said Kim demanded all sanctions on North Korea end at once in exchange for closing down the Yongbyon nuclear facility. None of the country's high-profile missile tests, including three ICBM launches in 2017, was conducted at the site. Experts say, however, that nuclear missiles and satellite rockets use similar technology. Foreign missile experts say the North still needs to master a few remaining technologies, such as perfecting a re-entry vehicle, to have functioning ICBMs.

38 North's analysis of the Sohae construction noted that efforts to rebuild the missile launch pad and engine test stand began sometime between February 2 and March 2, so the work might have started before the Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi.
Director General Yukiya Amano told the agency's board members on Monday that the IAEA has not observed any indications of the operation of the five-megawatt reactor at the Yongbyon nuclear complex since early December of previous year. "The U.S. government believes there are at least two additional enrichment (facilities)", he said.
As Trump took questions in the Oval Office, a reporter asked him about the activity picked up around Tongchang-ri, a launchpad and engine testing site that the North Koreans claim is used for space exploration. This could suggest that North Korea acknowledged that the Tongchang-ri site is a nuclear-related facility.
A statement issued by Kim and Moon categorized the steps as parts of a broader goal to make the Korean Peninsula free from nuclear weapons and nuclear threat.
