UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The National Agency for Geospatial Intelligence of the USA has applied to private companies for assistance in spying on military facilities in North Korea.
This is reported by CNN referring to sources familiar with the terms of contracts with private firms.
It is noted that US intelligence has called for the provision of satellite imagery, data from remote sensors and other available information about the military facilities of the DPRK.
Private firms will have to provide this information to the authorities from the end of May and until the end of this year.
It is specified that heavy cloud cover over the territory of North Korea does not always allow for good reconnaissance from space and the special service hopes to get a more detailed picture thanks to the data from the instruments for remote monitoring and underground sensor systems.
Earlier it became known that the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, during his talks with South Korean President Mun Zhe In, announced his intention to close the Phungery test site in May 2018.
Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Andrei Klimov in a conversation with the NSO commented on the talks between the DPRK and South Korea.
