North Korea Ramping Up Nuclear Fuel Production at Secret Cites

Trump delivered a brief somber soliloquy at the top of a longer speech marking six months since he signed a December tax-cut package into law

US officials told NBC News they believe North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un might try to hide more nuclear facilities while he continues talks with Trump.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union and Fox News Sunday, Bolton explained that the program would be contingent on North Korea cooperating and disclosing all of its nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons - an enormous if - but that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was repeatedly "very emphatic" about wanting to denuclearize at the summit with President Trump last month. "We can get, physically, we would be able to dismantle the overwhelming bulk of their programs within a year".

Pompeo has already visited Pyongyang twice since April to meet with Kim - the first time when he was still director of the Central Intelligence Agency - and there are discussions about a possible third trip to North Korea late next week but such a visit has not yet been confirmed.

However, his comments Sunday came just one day after NBC reported that they were told by more than a dozen US officials that North Korea is pushing forward with its nuclear program at multiple secret sites.

The US network, citing intelligence officials, said North Korea's regime was readying to "extract every concession" from the White House rather than giving up its atomic arsenal.

"We know exactly what the risks are - 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. "There's not any starry-eyed feeling among the group doing this".

The report comes a week after US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis suspended the Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercises, as well as two other war games with South Korean armed forces that were scheduled to take place over the next three months.

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

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo congratulated Harry Harris, 61, in a tweet published on Saturday afternoon, saying that "a lot of work ahead" waiting for Harris, including the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. Like many North Korea observers, he has been skeptical of Pyongyang's sincerity about denuclearization and has pointed out that the administration faces considerable challenges and questions on the issue following the Trump-Kim summit. President Trump also highlighted that he envisions a great future for North Korea.

"This is why people want North Korea to declare all its facilities up front", Wit said. "I think he's going to start now".

Watch above, via Fox News. Trump said that in return, the US would end its "very provocative" and "tremendously expensive" war games with longtime ally South Korea.

It's been just weeks since the Singapore summit, yet already North Korea seems to be breaking the deal.

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