SOS Mike Pompeo Back to North Korea on July 5

Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, said that Pompeo and North Korean officials will discuss a USA plan that would lead to the dismantling of the North's nuclear and missile programs in a year.

The images showed North Korea finishing construction on the exterior of the plant around the time Kim was meeting with Trump, the report said.

Sung Kim, the US ambassador to the Philippines, held talks with North Korean officials in the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas over the weekend, a State Department official confirmed Monday.

Intelligence officials said they're remaining cautious of north Korea's denuclearization, following reports the country still has materials for nuclear weapons.

USA officials led by Ambassador Sung Kim, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's point man for negotiations with Pyongyang, met with their North Korean counterparts Sunday at the demilitarized zone that divides North and South Korea, the first such meeting since the Singapore summit.

"We would be able to dismantle the overwhelming bulk of their programmes within a year", Bolton said.

Bolton said Sunday, July 1, the US has a plan that would lead to the dismantling of North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in a year. What we are going to give is good things in the future. Some aspects of the updated intelligence were reported Friday by NBC News.

The report comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo prepares to visit Pyongyang this week while the United States continues to press for denuclearization.

"If North Korea makes the decision to denuclearize, their ballistics programs could be dismantled in a year", she said.

Citing satellite imagery, a respected monitoring group last month said operations and infrastructure works were continuing at the North's main Yongbyon nuclear site, while the Trump administration itself has cited "an unusual and extraordinary threat" from North Korea's nuclear arsenal to extend decade-long sanctions.

A USA official told The Associated Press that the Post's report was accurate and that the assessment reflected the consistent view across US government agencies for the past several weeks. She also pointed out that North Korea has made similar moves in the past, which should have served as red flags to the current administration.

During his annual New Year's speech, Kim also ordered his country's ballistic missile and nuclear weapons research sectors to mass produce both items.

The facility makes solid-fuel, ballistic missiles-which would be able to strike US military installations in Asia with a nuclear weapon with little warning-as well as re-entry vehicles for warheads that Pyongyang might use on longer-range missiles able to hit the continental U.S.

It's still unclear what the hold-up is, almost two weeks after President Trump told a rally in Minnesota that North Korea already sent back 200 fallen heroes' remains.

Sanders said the United States was "continuing to make progress" in talks with North Korea.

North Korea has consistently refused in past rounds of failed negotiations to provide an inventory of its weapons program and US intelligence remains uncertain of how many nuclear warheads North Korea has.

Analysts say none of this should be surprising, especially since what is meant by "denuclearization of the Korean peninsula" is interpreted differently in Pyongyang than in Washington and Seoul.

"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.
