Pompeo Urges China to Fully Implement N. Korea Sanctions

Kim Jong Nam left was the estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

The U.S. has always known that North Korea's main nuclear production facility in Yongbyon and another undisclosed location; this latest intelligence report is the first to reveal multiple undisclosed nuclear production sites.

The Japanese and USA governments are arranging a stopover for Pompeo in Japan possibly on July 7 and 8, during which he is also expected to meet with Foreign Minister Taro Kono, according to the source.

"There is absolutely unequivocal evidence that they are trying to deceive the U.S.", the official reportedly said - an opinion that was held by four more officials who spoke with the U.S. network. Trump is said to have sought a reassessment of stationing United States troops in Germany after reportedly being surprised at the size of the U.S. presence (35,000 troops).

Operations continue at the Uranium Enrichment Plant at North Korea's Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center.

Trump has touted this as a major breakthrough with the nuclear-armed North after months of heated rhetoric and weapons tests, claiming in a tweet after the summit that there is "no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

The State Department said Pompeo had spoken to his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on Thursday and discussed efforts "to achieve our shared goal of the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Bruised US-India ties are part of the collateral damage Washington is shrugging off as it scrambles to fulfill President Trump's optimism over a deal with North Korea, which is reporting to be cheating on its agreement to denuclearize.

Last week, Trump underscored the point of "total denuclearization", while noting that it "has already started taking place". "That means there are at least three, if not more sites". Most important, there is no evidence that the fundamental policy preferences of the key actors (North Korea, China, the United States) have changed on this issue. "That means there are at least three, if not more sites", he said.Lewis said the report also implied that US intelligence had reporting to suggest North Korea did not intend to disclose one or more of the enrichment sites.

Haley said sanctions aimed at pressing North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons would remain, adding: "We need to see full actions on denuclearization, otherwise the sanctions will remain where they are".

Mr Kim's rare visit to the remote northern region spawns speculation that North Korea may seek to strengthen its economic cooperation with China amid their thawing ties.
