North Korea reportedly expands major missile plant

North Korea has reportedly increased nuclear production since summit contradicting President Trump's claims

The Washington Post reported on Saturday that USA intelligence officials have concluded that North Korea does not intend to fully give up its nuclear arsenal and is considering ways to hide the number of weapons it has.

This must inevitably raise questions on if Bolton's comments are created to support denuclearization, or undermine it. Bolton has always been opposed to North Korea diplomacy, and made it very clear that if his one-year deadline wasn't met, it'd be proof North Korea wasn't serious about the deal.

United States intelligence is not certain how many nuclear warheads North Korea has.

The meeting appears to be the first face-to-face contact between US officials and their North Korean counterparts since President Trump met with leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore.

Trump on Sunday said North Korea is "very serious" about denuclearization, but the these reports indicate the opposite.

"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", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

Yet the biggest revelation has been the details about North Korea's secret enrichment sites. Mr Trump is likely to have been briefed about that very information in the run-up to the Singapore summit. The Washington Post reported us intelligence believes North Korea doesn't intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpile and is instead seeking ways to hide it. Have I been in deals, have you been in things where, people didn't work out? "I'm sure that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be discussing this with the North Koreans in the near future about really how to dismantle all of their WMD and ballistic missile programs in a year", Bolton said. By revealing the extent of USA intel, Washington can put pressure on North Korea to admit to its secret sites and operations.

But, he added, Kim had been "very emphatic several times in Singapore he was different from prior regimes".




The facility makes solid-fuel, ballistic missiles-which would be able to strike US military installations in Asia with a nuclear weapon with little warning-as well as re-entry vehicles for warheads that Pyongyang might use on longer-range missiles able to hit the continental U.S.

Doubts over North Korea's intentions have deepened amid reports that it is continuing to produce fissile material for weapons.

Noting that the United States is very well aware of North Korea's pattern of behaviour over decades of negotiating with the U.S., he said that the Trump administration knows exactly what the risks are of them using negotiations to drag out the length of time they have to continue their nuclear, chemical, biological weapon programmes and ballistic missiles.

Pompeo told reporters the day after the Singapore summit on June 12 that Washington hoped to achieve "major disarmament" by North Korea within Trump's current term, which ends on January 20, 2021.

'It would be physically possible to dismantle the bulk of North Korea's programs within a year, ' said Thomas Countryman, the State Department's top arms control officer under President Barack Obama.

"I don't want a war with North Korea", Graham said.

"North Korea has covert facilities that it is unlikely to declare and eliminate initially", wrote the scientists. I shook hands with him.
