Mr Bolton, who has expressed hard-line views on North Korea, said if Pyongyang has made a decision to give up its nuclear weapons program and is cooperative, then "we can move very quickly" and they can win sanctions relief and aid from South Korea and Japan.

The White House also announced that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would leave for North Korea on Thursday, the third time he'll be visiting the Hermit Kingdom. While Mr Trump said North Korea would see economic penalties relaxed only after he has "completely denuclearised", Kim has advocated a "step-by-step" process.

The daily, citing intelligence officials, said that the United States intelligence officials have concluded that North Korea does not intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpiles.

While Pyongyang has stopped missile and nuclear weapons tests, "there's no evidence that they are decreasing stockpiles or that they have stopped their production", an official told NBC News in the US.

The Washington Post also reported on Saturday that a newly revised Defense Intelligence Agency assessment said North Korea did not intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpile and may be looking to hide its weapons and production facilities, including secret facilities not previously disclosed. In both trips, the chief USA diplomat met with the North's leader.

However, Jackson said, Kim's involvement with what he saw as a disappointing summit in Singapore showed the limits of this approach.

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S., July 2, 2018. That led to the North's participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in February and two summits between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Others think Kim might try to drag out the process and wait out the Trump administration, which a year ago had provided a credible threat of military force against the North.

The White House has expressed its positivity over United States and North Korea's future proceedings, but has not commented on recent USA intelligence leaks, which have discovered that Kim Jong-un had been actively expanding his nuclear arsenal. The reports, citing an unidentified diplomatic source, said that Andrew Kim, head of the CIA's Korea Mission Center, delivered a letter from Pompeo to Kim Yong Chol, North Korea's main envoy in talks. He said North Korea's weapons program could largely be ended in a year.

Lee, who plans to bring two or three North Korean players to the Asian Games, said he was impressed with "No. 9 and No. 7 on Team Peace", referring to North Korea's Ri Jong Ok and Jang Mi Kyong. "There is absolutely unequivocal evidence that they are trying to deceive the U.S.".

He said the one-year program the proposing would cover all the North's chemical and biological weapons, nuclear programs and ballistic missiles.

Pompeo told CNN last week he would not put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea, but said the Trump administration will regularly assess the regime's seriousness about abandoning its nuclear program as the U.S. moves toward normalizing relations with Pyongyang.

A strategy by David Albright at the Institute for Science and International Security suggests the US needs to get Kim to disclose a complete list of all his nuclear program sites and materials, including uranium and plutonium.

In testimony before a US Senate committee, Mr Pompeo declined to go into specifics but suggested the scope of what the US has in mind.
