Trump Says Talks with North Korea are 'Going Well'

This marked the third day in a row that the North Korean media has reported on Mr Kim's on-site inspections.

On Sunday, the Wall Street Journal's Jonathan Cheng reported that experts monitoring satellite imagery believe North Korea is also expanding a key missile-manufacturing plant, which could produce ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear payloads.

"The new intelligence, described by four officials who have seen it or received briefings, is based on material gathered in the weeks since the summit", the daily said. "If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!".

It said the findings support a new, previously undisclosed Defence Intelligence Agency estimate that North Korea is unlikely to denuclearize.

Satellite images from Planet Labs taken on April 1 (left), and June 29 show development at a North Korea missile production facility in Hamhung, South Hambyong Province.

"Ambassador Kim had a meeting just yesterday with members of the North Korean delegation, and Secretary Pompeo will be headed to North Korea later this week", she said.

"We should still look positively on any diplomatic effort that could realistically achieve complete and verifiable denuclearization and avoid active conflict", Johnson said.

North Korea invited reporters from several countries - including the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain - to record the event. Pompeo told reporters three weeks ago that the USA wants North Korea to take "major" nuclear disarmament steps within the next two years - before the end of Trump's first term in January 2021.

Canada has begun imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion in US goods as retaliation for the Trump administration's new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States.

John Bolton said top USA diplomat Mike Pompeo will be discussing that plan with North Korea in the near future.

US President Donald Trump said the United States would be at war with North Korea "if not for me" and his relationship with leader Kim Jong-un - even as reports say the regime continues to work to develop its nuclear arsenal. "We go into this eyes wide open with a very clear view of these conversations". "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.

National security adviser John Bolton, who appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, said he wouldn't comment on USA intelligence but emphasized the US will not be duped by the Kim regime, which has so often acted in bad faith.

He warned this would only be possible with "full cooperation" from North Korea.

Bolton dismissed a question about whether Trump has been more willing to criticise USA allies than authoritarian leaders of rival nations, including Putin and North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

Prior to the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore, North Korea announced the demolition of its Punggye-ri nuclear test site, where it conducted six announced atomic underground detonations.

"I was here with you after the [Kim-Trump] summit occurred", Maller noted.

Also, many question if Trump has the persistence to see through a lengthy and expensive process to fully eliminate North Korea's nuclear threat.
