Daily Mail: North Korea continues to develop its intercontinental ballistic missiles, despite vowing to put a stop to launches as leader Kim Jong-un calls for more peace talks with the South

* Radio signals detected from North Korea are said to have come from an ICBM
* Kim Jong-un previously called a halt to the nuclear programme in June this year
* It comes as he penned a letter to South Korea asking for further peace talks

North Korea has continued to develop its nuclear missiles, despite pledging to ditch the weapons programme earlier this year - it has been revealed.

The hermit kingdom is said to have conducted a missile-linked radio wave experiment earlier this month after signals were picked up which are known to have been emitted from warhead equipment - according to the Japan News.

Leader Kim Jong-un declared an end to missile launches earlier this year after a crunch summit with US President Donald Trump in Singapore in June.

The U.S. military, Japan Self-Defense Forces and South Korean military are constantly monitoring North Korea for radio waves.

The Japan News article does not name any sources beyond anonymous. Nor does it explicitly link these sources to any governments, instead it relies on nearness within the text of the article itself to give an illusion of linkage.
