US intel agency believes Kim won't fully denuclearize

Kim has consistently said he's willing to denuclearize, but long-time North Korea watchers worry that Pyongyang and Washington have very different definitions of the term denuclearization.

US President Donald Trump says talks with North Korea are "going well", claiming that without him, the United States "would now be at war with North Korea". "In the meantime, no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months". The improvements include several new buildings and modifications to the plutonium production reactor's cooling system.

"Also, this most recent report that the North Koreans are building a facility to build more parts for their solid-fuel missiles - that's also inconsistent with the notion that they are going to give up their weapons".

Asked about the USA diplomat's visit, Kim Eui-keum, a spokesman for South Korea's Blue House, said that they were aware of the meeting but that it would be inappropriate to comment further.

An American team, led by U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim - the former Special Representative for North Korea Policy - met with their North Korean counterparts on Sunday in Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone between the Koreas.

Although US intelligence officials have stated unequivocally that Russian agents sought to influence the 2016 presidential election, Trump has continued to cast doubt on those conclusions.

President Trump said Tuesday that the United States would be at war with North Korea without his efforts and that conversations with the nation's leaders are "going well" - an assessment at odds with recent reports that North Korea is working to hide key aspects of its nuclear weapons program.

While the reports - some relying on satellite imagery predating the summit - have not been officially verified, they suggest that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has much to discuss during an expected trip to Pyongyang in the coming days.

The White House has expressed its positivity over U.S. and North Korea's future proceedings, but has not commented on recent United States intelligence leaks, which have discovered that Kim Jong-un had been actively expanding his nuclear arsenal. "We know exactly what the risks are of them using negotiations to drag out the length of time they have to continue their nuclear chemical biological weapons programs and ballistic missiles", Bolton said.

The North Korean government appears to be finalizing the expansion of a major ballistic missile manufacturing plant, a monitoring group tells CBN News.

USA intelligence is not certain how many nuclear warheads North Korea has. Pompeo, who has taken a leading role in negotiations with the North Korean leader, has said it may take years to implement an agreement that would eliminate the nation's nuclear stockpile. "And the fact that our Secretary is now getting ready to go and have his fourth meeting with the North Koreans in less than three months I think is a testament to just how far we've come". I would say it seems now all but certain.
