Satellite images may be indicating that North Korea has begun the process of dismantling facilities at one of its sites where engines for ballistic missiles are built, but Rep. Pete King said Tuesday the North Koreans and leader Kim Jong Un can't be trusted.

"If that report is true, it's a step in the right direction," the New York Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "We cannot trust the North Koreans. You cannot trust Kim Jong Un. We have to lean on them and pressure China and other countries to make sure North Korea begins and starts to follow through on the promises it made to President [Donald] Trump."

On Monday, 38 North, a Washington-based think tank reported the satellite images, taken on July 20. They show work at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station where a building used to assemble space-launch vehicles and a nearby rocket engine test stand used to develop liquid-fuel engines for ballistic missiles and space-launch vehicles was being dismantled.

"That has to be all part of the ongoing negotiations and we should make no concessions to them at all until we have concrete proof that they are in reasonable compliance at the very least," said King. "They haven't even returned the remains of the American bodies from the Korean War. They've been lying for 65 years now, 70 years.The fact is we cannot trust them and we cannot believe them and we need to always keep that in mind."
