United States seeking second Trump-Kim meeting in NY

  • FILE- U.S. National security adviser John Bolton said Sunday the U.S. has a plan that would lead to the dismantling of North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in a year

New satellite images have shown how North Korea were adding the finishing touches on a ballistic missile factory at the same time that Kim Jong-un met with Donald Trump last month.

Earlier, the State Department confirmed that a u.s. delegation led by Sung Kim, the USA ambassador to the Philippines, 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.

"Many good conversations with North Korea - it is going well!"

Sung Kim, an ambassador to South Korea between 2011 and 2014 and a nuclear negotiator with the North during previous talks, has taken on a key role in dialogue with Pyongyang in recent months. "Only the Opposition Party, which includes the Fake News, is complaining", he tweeted. "If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!"

On Monday, a White House spokesperson declined to comment to FOX Business regarding the plans for a second meeting.

The president would like to see these discussions move promptly to get a resolution, Bolton said, adding that this has been the advice that China's leader Xi Jinping has given to the U.S. as well.

Meanwhile, during an appearance on CBS's Face the Nation program on Sunday, Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, said that most of Kim's weapons of mass destruction could be dismantled "within a year" with North Korean cooperation - something he acknowledged that the United States has yet to receive.

But with the latest remark from the State Department, Washington appears to be giving Pyongyang a little space when it comes to denuclearization with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo scheduled to begin his third trip to Pyongyang today.

The diplomatic efforts come as American intelligence officials have stated that North Korea is still processing nuclear fuel and expanding its weapons programs.

The findings support a new, previously undisclosed Defense Intelligence Agency estimate that North Korea is unlikely to denuclearize.

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".

Kim is the USA ambassador to the Philippines and has been one of the key United States officials dealing with the North Koreans leading up to the Trump-Kim summit. 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. "I'm not going to get into the details, but I can tell you that progress continues to be made", she said.

The U.S. State Department said here Tuesday it will not provide a timeline for the abandonment of nuclear and missile program of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
