Bolton Claims US Has Plan to Disarm North Korea Within a Year

Trudeau Canadians will not be pushed around

And on Sunday, Wall Street Journal reported that it had seen satellite imagery suggesting that Pyongyang is pushing ahead with its weapons programmes.

The meeting, which would come three months after President Donald Trump's historic Singapore summit with Kim, would coincide with the United Nations General Assembly's annual summit in New York City.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will leave for North Korea on Thursday, seeking agreement on a plan for the country's denuclearization despite mounting doubts about Pyongyang's willingness to abandon a weapons program that threatens the United States and its allies.

In an interview with Fox Business News' Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Trump reassured his followers for the hundredth time that he had great "chemistry" with Kim and said, "I made a deal with him".

NBC News and the Washington Post reported that North Korean attempts to hide nuclear work.

North Korea has consistently refused in past rounds of failed negotiations to provide an inventory of its weapons program and USA intelligence remains uncertain of how many nuclear warheads North Korea has.

"It is perfectly rational for North Korea to shift the emphasis to developing solid fuel missiles now that it already has a suite of liquid fuel missiles to deter an attack", he said. He warned this would only be possible with "full cooperation" from North Korea.

Sung Kim, who has played a critical role in the negotiations with Pyongyang, led a delegation that met with their North Korean counterparts in Panmunjom, a village on the demilitarized zone separating the two countries, the Washington Post reported.

Nova Scotia adopts new heat warning system
Even those not specifically at risk are encouraged to stay inside or in the shade, and to limit outdoor activity in the heat. The Atlantic region's heat wave is expected to break midweek, and Southern Ontario's should only last until Friday.

I would say it seems now all but certain. Some aspects of the new intelligence were reported on Friday by NBC News.

According to US National Security Advisor John Bolton, North Korea will shut down the majority of its nuclear weapons programs within a year. "We're well aware of what the North Koreans have done in the past".

The Trump administration said the talks made progress but would not elaborate.

I mentioned last week that satellite analysis showed that North Koreans were building up their nuclear research facility.

President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning that "we would now be at War with North Korea" but for his personal efforts. "I would like to see some answers as to why we didn't take the server, why the Federal Bureau of Investigation didn't take the server from the DNC".

"There's not any starry-eyed feeling among the group doing this", he added.

Former UN weapons inspector David Albright told CNN on Monday that his firm has new information about a secret North Korean facility producing highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium.

The moves illustrate how far Kim remains from surrendering his nuclear weapons despite committing to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" during his meeting with Trump.
