Work harder, Kim tells hungry North Koreans

Although Biegun appeared to be in favor of a more incremental approach before the summit, Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, has long opposed that strategy and has privately expressed his view that Biegun was offering too much to the North Koreans.

Lee's visit, days after the February 27 and 28 Kim-Trump summit, came as Seoul struggles to maintain its role prodding along North-U.S. dialogue. "We see it unblinkingly, and we don't have any illusions about what those are".

Observers said that Pyongyang might use the political event to further reinforce national cohesion and have its people coalesce behind its ruler, particularly after last month's breakup of the Hanoi summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump, according to Yonhap news agency.

Several reports surfaced by Seoul's spy agency and two USA think tanks speculating that restoration work at the Pyongyang's long-range missile launch site in Dongchang-ri.

South Korea's military said Monday it was closely monitoring North Korean facilities after a series of satellite images triggered global alarm that Pyongyang might be preparing a long-range missile or space launch.

"Diplomacy is still very much alive", Biegun said, although he offered no specifics on when new talks might be held and did not say whether any talks had taken place since the summit, which collapsed over differences on US demands for Pyongyang's denuclearization and North Korea's demand for sanctions relief. "He's invested a lot of time in trying to develop that relationship", Bolton told ABC's "This Week".

Santiago Solari ignoring increasing Jose Mourinho to Real Madrid speculation

"The president has been very clear that he's not going to make the mistakes of prior administrations".

Trump and Kim first met in Singapore in June 2018, producing only a North Korean commitment to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. They - they never seem to get around to it though. We see exactly what they're doing now.

Bolton's comments came after two USA think tanks and Seoul's spy agency said last week that North Korea was rebuilding a rocket launch site at Sohae in the west of the country.

He said Mr Trump had proposed a "big deal" in the Hanoi summit under which North Korea would completely denuclearise and also give up its chemical and biological weapons.

The Sohae Satellite Launching Station launch pad features what researchers of Beyond Parallel, a CSIS project, describe as showing the partially rebuilt rail-mounted rocket transfer structure in a commercial satellite image taken over Tongchang-ri, North Korea on March 2, 2019 and released March 5, 2019. "Well, I think there will be", she added. "I would be surprised, in a negative way, if he did anything that was not per our understanding", Trump told reporters as he left the White House on Friday to survey damage in Alabama.
