Trump is convinced that he prevented a U.S. war with North Korea

  • US National Security Adviser John Bolton speaks during a press conference in Moscow

A U.S. delegation, led by U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, met with North Korean officials on Sunday in the truce village of Panmunjom.

On Monday, CNN reported that the Defense Intelligence Agency believes Kim has no intention of engaging in a full denuclearization program, at least for now, according to an administration official familiar with the agency's finding.

Immediately following the summit, Trump also announced the US was canceling a major joint military exercise with South Korea scheduled for August, Ulchi Freedom Guardian - even calling it a "war game", and "provocative" - the same language used by North Korea and China. "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". Trump said in his Twitter post, echoing his sentiments following the historic meeting with Kim in Singapore.

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

The White House and Trump's surrogates insisted that the unsavory handshake would be vindicated.

The UN special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea visited South Korea on Monday and urged Seoul to press Pyongyang on human rights issues. Hit by that sophisticated diplomatic approach, Kim would trade missiles for condos. Now it is being revealed as fatally naive. There will be a strong impulse within parts of the United States government to embrace such steps as proof that President Trump's engagement is yielding gains, improving U.S.

The satellite images showed that North Korea appears to be fast- tracking upgrades on the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center. North Korea declared on New Year's Day that it no longer needed those tests because it had perfected its nuclear weapons program.

To anyone with even a basic understanding of North Korea, this comes as no surprise.

Some US media are reporting that Pyongyang is continuing its nuclear and missile developments after the Singapore summit. "It is a mark of how poorly President Trump prepared for Singapore that he did not anticipate this and demand sharper language and a timeline in exchange for the valuable concession of a presidential summit".

Perhaps that's by design.

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.

And on Sunday, Wall Street Journal reported that it had seen satellite imagery suggesting that Pyongyang is pushing ahead with its weapons programmes. "I'm not going to get into the details, but I can tell you that progress continues to be made", she said.

The South Koreans will play against the North Korean men's and women's teams on Thursday before returning home on Friday. Once president-to-chairman diplomacy inevitably failed, it would pave the way for Bolton's favored choice: deadly force. Trump himself acknowledged that the wording on the agreement may not have been sufficient because there was "no time". Kim may want to give up his weapons but the generals may not.
