Trump says North Korea talks 'going well,' lashes critics

Axios reported Monday that some administration officials are even optimistic about the possibility of a second meeting between Trump and Kim, in September in NY.

"We know exactly what the risks are of them using negotiations to drag out the length of time they have to continue their nuclear, chemical, biological weapons programs and ballistic missiles", said National Security Advisor John Bolton over the weekend.

The plant produces solid-fueled ballistic missiles and warhead re-entry vehicles, both of which are essential components in North Korea's development of a credible nuclear deterrent.

Thoughts on the pic?

Washington and Pyongyang have yet to negotiate a plan for how North Korea will denuclearize.

After visiting the North Korean capital later this week, Pompeo will travel to Japan, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates before heading to Belgium, where he will accompany President Donald Trump at the NATO summit in Brussels.

US President Donald Trump is reportedly seeking to hold a second meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in September, this time in NY. USA intelligence officials have separately concluded that Kim was seeking to hide his nuclear weapons stockpile and had no intention of surrendering his arsenal, NBC News reported.

Ahead of his planned return to North Korea later this week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his Chinese counterpart against backsliding on sanctions pressure, emphasizing "the continued importance of full enforcement of all relevant UN Security Council resolutions related to North Korea".

Bolton said on Sunday that Pompeo would be presenting their one-year plan to the North Koreans soon, but just a few days prior, Pompeo declined to put a timeline on negotiations with Pyongyang.

The meeting appears to be the first face-to-face contact between US officials and their North Korean counterparts since President Donald Trump met with leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore.

An NBC News report on Friday quoted officials saying USA intelligence agencies believe North Korea has increased production of fuel for nuclear weapons at multiple secret sites in recent months and may try to hide these while seeking concessions in talks with the United States.

On Saturday, he visited a reed farm in Sindo county, also on the Sino-North Korea border.

After the meeting, Trump tweeted that there was no longer a nuclear threat from the country.

Mr Bolton, who has expressed hard-line views on North Korea, said if Pyongyang has made a decision to give up its nuclear weapons program and is cooperative, then "we can move very quickly" and they can win sanctions relief and aid from South Korea and Japan.

To date, Kim has halted nuclear and missile tests and has destroyed tunnels at the North's nuclear test site, but the authoritarian nation has yet to take concrete steps toward abandoning its weapons programs.

North Korea invited reporters from several countries - including the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain - to record the event.
