As Vietnam prepares for the summit, its reform model is being widely touted as the economic path for impoverished and isolated North Korea to follow.

The regime is said to have used spent fuel from a nuclear plant in Yongbyon to produce up to 18 pounds of weapons-grade uranium since May 2018.

Combined with production of 330 pounds of highly enriched uranium, it would allow Kim Jong-un to add between five and seven weapons to his nuclear arsenal.

According to a study released by Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) on Monday, North Korea produced enough fissile material a year ago to construct an estimated seven more nuclear bombs, even as it was negotiating denuclearization with the Trump administration.

"When they ended missile testing, those things rolled backwards".

'So when I look at the whole spectrum, to me North less unsafe today than it was at the end of 2017, in spite of the fact that they may have made another five to seven weapons worth of nuclear material'.

Gen. Abrams stressed that even if the United States eliminates the nuclear menace, US troops will need to remain in the region to combat other conventional threats to American interests posed by North Korea.
