  • Doubts on North Korean denuclearization shadow Pompeo visit

He also reiterated that he got along with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, adding that the two discussed various issues including denuclearization as well as the return of the remains of US troops killed during the Korean War. Team Prosperity defeated Team Peace 103-102, with North Korea's Ro Suk Yong scoring 18 points, according to pool reports.

"The expansion of the production infrastructure for North Korea's solid-fuel missile infrastructure probably suggests that Kim Jong Un does not intend to abandon his nuclear and missile programs", he told the Wall Street Journal.

The White House refused to comment on media reports saying North Korea was planning to hide its nuclear weapons and missiles programme.

The top USA 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.

He said the administration was well aware of North Koreas track record over the decades in dragging out negotiations with the U.S.to continue weapons development.

On CBS's "Face the Nation", Bolton said North Korea's nuclear arsenal could be dismantled in a year if Pyongyang cooperates, adding that the program would require "full disclosure of all [of North Korea's] chemical and biological, nuclear programs, ballistic missile sites".

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

If Kim cooperates, Mr Bolton said, the process would happen quickly.

Mr Pompeo's visit follows the historic summit between Kim and President Donald Trump in June.

In recent years, the United States, through imagery and computer hacking, has improved its intelligence collection in North Korea.

At the same time, United States envoy Sung Kim held talks with North Korean officials on Sunday in the border village of Panmunjom within the demilitarised zone between the North and South Korea, South Korean media reported on Sunday. A top USA diplomat had a meeting with members of a North Korean delegation on Sunday. Bolton added that it would be to the Norths advantage to cooperate to see sanctions lifted quickly and aid from South Korea and Japan start to flow.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will head to Pyongyang today to reach an agreement with Kim Jong-un over the country's denuclearisation plan.

Experts say Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang would serve as a barometer for future negotiations over North Korea's nuclear weapons programs.

Nauert similarly dodged a question on the specific timeline imposed on North Korea regarding getting rid of its illegal nuclear weapons program. "The Secretary has said - and he's been very clear about this, and I know it's much to your frustration - but we're not going to get into all the details about the discussions that are taking place", she told reporters.
