North Korea steps up production of fuel for nuclear weapons

"I think they're very serious about it".

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

He said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will likely discuss that proposal with the North Koreans soon. The Financial Times reported that Pompeo was due to visit North Korea this week but Reuters has not been able to confirm his travel plans.

Some experts disputed Bolton's optimistic time frame.

Bolton told CBS's Face the Nation that Washington has devised a programme to dismantle North Korea's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs in a year. I really believe he means it.

The Post's report corroborates a Friday exposé by NBC News that quoted US intelligence officials warning of North Korea's attempts to hide information from the USA about its nuclear program.

But, he added: "We have not yet physically received them". "Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center are continuing at a rapid pace", it said.

The report stated that North Korea has "at least one undeclared facility to enrich nuclear fuel" besides Yongbyon, the main nuclear location.

"And it's to North Korea's advantage to see these programs dismantled very quickly because then the elimination of sanctions aid by South Korea and Japan and others can all begin to flow".

It said the findings support a new, previously undisclosed Defense Intelligence Agency estimate that North Korea is unlikely to denuclearize.

Bartiromo asked him about the historic summit with Kim in Singapore just weeks ago, saying North Korea should be telling the U.S.

Meanwhile, the North Koreans also have operated a secret underground uranium enrichment site known as Kangson, which was first reported in May by The Washington Post.

On Sunday, Bolton declined to comment on USA intelligence assessments, but said the administration is "very well aware of North Korea's patterns of behavior over decades of negotiating with the United States".

"I think they want to do it", he said in a prerecorded interview. "There's not any starry-eyed feeling among the group doing this". We've seen how the North Koreans have behaved before.

Asia expert Patrick Cronin called the NBC and Washington Post reports "extremely worrisome".

"There is no evidence that they are decreasing stockpiles, or that they have stopped their production", one official told NBC.

That has not stopped the self-styled anti-Trump Resistance from accusing the USA president of inspiring the attack, going so far as to claim he has "blood on his hands".

Republican Senator Susan Collins said she was troubled by the news reports. Trump had showered Kim with praises, calling him a "very talented man", and made security concessions in return for very little.

Another of Trump's fellow Republicans in the US Senate, Lindsey Graham, echoed the need for skepticism. Interviewed on NBC's Meet the Press, Lindsey Graham of SC said North Korea would "regret it" if nuclear talks collapsed.
