North Korea's Kim asked China to bring early end to sanctions: Yomiuri

Trump delivered a brief somber soliloquy at the top of a longer speech marking six months since he signed a December tax-cut package into law

Trump made the declaration after his June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, during which the President promised Kim to stop the "war games" by ending USA military exercises with South Korea.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union and Fox News Sunday, Bolton explained that the program would be contingent on North Korea cooperating and disclosing all of its nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons - an enormous if - but that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was repeatedly "very emphatic" about wanting to denuclearize at the summit with President Trump last month.

Bolton told CBS's Face the Nation that Washington has devised a programme to dismantle North Korea's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programmes in a year.

"If they have the strategic decision already made to do that, and they're cooperative, we can move very quickly", he added.

USA intelligence has collected evidence pointing to plans by Pyongyang to deceive the West into thinking it has dismantled its nuclear program and push for sanctions relief, the Washington Post reported late Saturday.

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo has tried to walk that statement back, but Pompeo has also falsely tweeted on Saturday that Kim Jong-un had agreed to "fully verified denuclearization" - which again, would be pretty hard to do without having an actual agreement in place. The Financial Times reported that Pompeo was due to visit North Korea this week but the State Department has not confirmed any travel plans.

The Washington Post on Saturday cited unnamed us intelligence officials as concluding that North Korea does not intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpile.

He also reiterated that he got along with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, . adding that the two discussed various issues including denuclearization as well as the return of the remains of USA troops killed during the Korean War.

The US network, citing intelligence officials, said North Korea's regime was readying to "extract every concession" from the White House rather than giving up its atomic arsenal.

"Work is ongoing to deceive us on the number of facilities, the number of weapons, the number of missiles", an official said.

Kim is the United States ambassador to the Philippines and has been one of the key U.S. officials dealing with the North Koreans leading up to the Trump-Kim summit.

The report stated that North Korea has "at least one undeclared facility to enrich nuclear fuel" besides Yongbyon, the main nuclear location.

Pressure will now be on Pompeo to make progress in negotiations with North Korea to turn the summit declaration into concrete action.

Despite Trump's rosy post-summit declaration that the North no longer poses a nuclear threat, Washington and Pyongyang have yet to negotiate the terms under which it would relinquish the weapons that it developed over decades to deter the U.S. Last summer, during his first one-on-one meeting with Putin, in Hamburg, Trump said that he questioned him about the interference accusations and that the Russian leader denied it. And by the way I really believe North Korea has a tremendous future. "And it is to North Korea's advantage to dismantle very quickly".

"There was a delay, but I think he has now got the agreement to go", former US National Security Council director of Asian affairs Victor Cha told the Guardian.
