"Our goal remains the final, fully-verified denuclearization of the DPRK, as agreed to by Chairman Kim in Singapore", the official said in an emailed statement, which referred to the initials of North Korea's official name: the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

President Trump left his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un claiming victory in his quest to denuclearize the country.

If Kim does visit NY in September, it will be the longest journey he has ever taken as North Korean leader. The content of this image is as provided and can not be independently verified.

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

Bolton also said on "Face the Nation" that during the US-North Korea summit in Singapore, Kim was "very emphatic several times" about turning over the arsenal, which was a change from previous regimes.

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.

According to reports in South Korea, Sung Kim met with North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Choi Sun Hee at Panmunjom for an hour and a half Sunday.

But U.S. intelligence is reporting signs that Pyongyang doesn't intend to fully give up its arsenal.

"To continue the ongoing and important work of denuclearization on the Korean peninsula, Secretary Pompeo will be leaving for North Korea on July 5 to meet with the leader and the team", spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. It's to North Korea's advantage to see these programmes dismantled very quickly, because then the elimination of sanctions, aid by South Korea and Japan and others can all begin to flow.

Much remains to be determined about how Lopez Obrador's often nebulous campaign proposals will manifest themselves in government. An exit poll by Parmetira had Lopez Obrador winning with between 53 to 59 percent of the vote, far ahead of his two main rivals.

US Defense Secretary James Mattis has reassured East Asian allies that the US commitment to Seoul is "ironclad" - despite Trump's unilateral suspension of military exercises with South Korea and his warm words for a North Korean leader widely viewed as a brutal dictator.

Trump could dangle a second meeting in NY as an incentive for North Korea to follow that timeline, officials told Axios.

Bolton refused to comment on intelligence matters but the United States was going into nuclear negotiations aware of Pyongyang's failure to live up to its promises in the past.

Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California, issued a report on Monday saying recent satellite imagery showed North Korea was completing a major expansion of a key manufacturing plant for solid-fuel missiles.

Separately, he told "Fox News Sunday" that "we are using the full range of our capabilities to understand what North Korea is doing".

"We have developed a program".

Kim made the request during his third meeting with Xi in Beijing last month, and the Chinese president promised to do his "utmost" to satisfy it, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said. Intelligence reports indicate that North Korea is stepping up enrichment at two or more secret sites. "If they have the strategic decision already made to do that, and they're cooperative, we can move very quickly", he added.

Still, there are gestures both sides could make to build trust along the lines of the USA president's unilateral decision to suspend joint military exercises with South Korea planned for August.
