Pompeo: North Korea remains a nuclear threat

Trump has often pointed to the absence of North Korean missile and nuclear tests in recent months as a sign of progress toward denuclearization, but continued maintenance of facilities like Yongbyon show that talks with the USA have not yet prompted Kim to take significant steps toward truly dismantling the foundation of his program.

He added that Washington D.C. will not put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea, but will instead constantly reassess latter's commitment to denuclearisation.

"Commercial satellite imagery from June 21 indicates that improvements to the infrastructure at".

That's less than two weeks after Trump boasted of a diplomatic breakthrough with Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons program after decades of hostility.

He said the best way to repay the veterans is to build a Korean Peninsula of peace, stressing that peace is the way to truly honor the fallen heroes. "Today, following the summit, we are in a dramatically different place". Uranium enrichment, a key component for civil nuclear power generation and military nuclear weapons, is still taking place, according to 38 North's interpretation of the images. It might be impossible to embark on such projects unless North Korea denuclearizes, which isn't a sure thing.

One will connect the South's eastern border county of Goseong with the North's major eastern port of Wonsan, and the other will run between the North's western city of Kaesong and the capital Pyongyang, said the statement.

Pompeo was also questioned about Trump's saying after the summit with Kim that North Korea no longer posed a nuclear threat, an assertion questioned by analysts and mocked by Democrats.

It did not produce anything on how to get it done.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed confidence Wednesday that North Korea understands the full scope of the U.S. request for denuclearization.

The North Korean leader committed to "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees from the U.S. The details have yet to be worked out. But as North Korea's largest trading partner and immediate neighbor, China is especially keen to see a resolution to the nuclear crisis that has threatened the stability of the region.
