Doubts on North Korean denuclearization shadow Pompeo visit

US intelligence officials believe North Korea has been "deceiving" the USA, saying the Hermit Kingdom was bolstering production for nuclear weapons at "multiple secret sites" in the past few months, a report stated.
The State Department said Mr Pompeo's travel to Pyongyang on July 5 to 7 will be followed by a stop in Tokyo, where he "will meet with Japanese and South Korean leaders to discuss our shared commitment to the final, fully verified denuclearisation" of North Korea as well as other issues. Bolton, who has expressed hardline views on North Korea, said that if Pyongyang has chose 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.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un asked Chinese President Xi Jinping during a meeting in Beijing in June to work towards bringing an early end to economic sanctions imposed on his country, Japan's Yomiuri newspaper reported on Sunday. Evidence collected since the Singapore summit points to preparations to deceive the US about the number of nuclear warheads in North Korea's arsenal as well as the existence of undisclosed facilities used to make fissile material for nuclear bombs, according to the report.
That's what Bolton said during his interview with CBS' "Face the Nation", and it's the first time for a member of the Trump administration to publicly state a timeline for the North's denuclearization.
Kim, the United States ambassador to the Philippines, met with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui for working talks that were believed to be focused on setting the agenda for an upcoming visit to North Korea by Pompeo, according to reports in Yonhap News Agency and MBC television.

"Once they started playing, the players showed quick chemistry and I was proud of them", said Lee Moon-kyu, the head coach of South Korea's women's team, who will also lead a combined Koreas team at the Asian Games next month in Indonesia.
He said the one-year program the U.S.is proposing would cover all of the Norths chemical and biological weapons, nuclear programs and ballistic missiles.
Bruce Klingner, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst, said, "The observed activity appears inconsistent with a North Korean intent to abandon its nuclear weapons programs".
Mr. Trump insisted the talks are moving "very quickly" and that he believed North Korea is serious about total denuclearization.
"I made a deal with him".
