Trump Wants North Korea to Denuclearize in a Year

In a tweet, Trump claimed credit for a cessation in nuclear testing or rocket launches by North Korea and said his efforts to rid it of nuclear weapons were "going well".

Kim's delegation delivered Pompeo's letter to Kim Yong Chol, a top Pyongyang official who met Pompeo and U.S. President Donald Trump ahead of last month's historic summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Yonhap news agency said, citing an unnamed diplomatic source.

President Donald Trump claimed on Twitter Tuesday that the US would be at war with North Korea if it were not for him. She declined to confirm or deny recent media reports of intelligence assessments saying North Korea has been expanding its weapons capabilities.

"The expansion suggests that, despite hopes for denuclearization, Kim Jong Un is committed to increasing North Korea's stockpile of nuclear-armed missiles", the report's authors David Schmerler and Jeffrey Lewis wrote.

A US delegation led by USA ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim met with North Korean counterparts at Panmunjom on the border between North and South Korea on Sunday to discuss next steps on the implementation of the summit declaration, the State Department said.

"We got back our great fallen heroes, the remains sent back today, already 200 got sent back", Trump said in Duluth, Minnesota, on June 20.

White House national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday he believed the bulk of North Korea's weapons programmes could be dismantled within a year, as the United States and North Korea resumed working-level talks.

Pompeo last visited Pyongyang in May ahead of the Trump-Kim summit and traveled there secretly in early April while he was director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

After signing the brief, general agreement in which North Korea pledged to denuclearize, Trump proclaimed that the rogue nation was no longer a nuclear threat.

The top US diplomat is expected to discuss with North Korean officials concrete measures that would see Pyongyang relinquish its nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles and possibly other weapons of mass destruction.

A senior USA intelligence official also said last week that Pyongyang was continuing to "deceive us on the number of facilities, the number of weapons, the number of missiles".

Mr Chang said that Kim Jong-un may now believe he can "push President Trump around". "If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!"

North Korea has repeatedly threatened to attack the USA after decades of hostility and suspicion since the 1950-53 Korean War closed with a ceasefire.

Pompeo told CNN late last month that he would not set a deadline for the denuclearization of North Korea and would "constantly reassess" whether enough progress is being made to continue negotiations.

"I am not going to comment on any reports, true, untrue, or partially true, about intelligence".
