>> In North Korea's remote northeast, lies a site where missiles were created that could target the US. However, this massive facility may instead become what brings the two countries together if Kim Jong-un follows through with what he pledged at the Singapore summit and destroy the site.>> My meeting with Chairman Kim was honest, direct and productive.

>> In Singapore, US president Donald Trump told reporters Kim had promised to dismantle a major test area, but didn't say which one. An American official revealed Wednesday it would be the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, a facility mainly used to test engines for long range missiles. The North has other testing sites, but analysts say if Sohae is shut down, that would be a significant gesture.

It's North Korea's most well known facility, where they recorded several milestones, including their first successful space launch. However, experts also warn, it would be a mostly symbolic gesture as well. They say if the North already has engines to run their missiles, they wouldn't necessarily need the site to run their weapons program.

And that leaves more questions as to what was actually achieved in the Singapore summit. Though Trump has been calling it a success, Pyongyang so far hasn't made any new tangible commitments.>> But signed a very, very comprehensive document, and I believe he's gonna live up to that document.

In fact, when he lands, which is gonna be shortly, I think that he will start that process right away.>> Think tank 38-North says so far there has been no sign of any activity towards dismantling Sohae or any other missile test site in North Korea. The US official on Wednesday said the United States will continue to monitor this site closely as we move forward in our negotiations.
