Pompeo: Second Trump-Kim summit to be held somewhere in Asia

Pompeo: Second Trump-Kim summit to be held somewhere in Asia

Biegun said the USA had eased the rules on the provision of humanitarian aid for the North, adding that he would discuss other "corresponding measures" when he meets Kim Hyok-chol in the South Korean capital.

However, he hammered in his concerns about Iran and stressed that their rocket testing is a unsafe sign.

Other issues involve recovery of remains from 5,000 United States soldiers who never returned from the Korean War and Washington's desire for a permanent peace to replace an armistice that ended the war, and full normalization of relations with embassies in each nation's capital, Beijun said.

Trump claimed he was "very much in agreement" with the intelligence community's assessment of USA threats, despite his intelligence chiefs suggesting otherwise on many occasions.

US President Donald Trump has reversed course on his spymasters' threat assessment, insisting his initial negative reaction - in which he dismissed their reports as "wrong" and "naïve" - was based on (what else?) fake news. They say this same thing about Syria in their written assessment.

In the hearing about global threats, the country's senior spies took issue with Trump's assertion that the Islamic State jihadist group has been defeated, and that North Korea can be convinced to forego its nuclear weapons. I think I did a great thing when I terminated the ridiculous Iran nuclear deal.

However, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats testified at Congress last Tuesday, that intelligence information does not support the idea that Kim will eliminate his nuclear weapons or the capacity for building more.

The move comes as arrangements are being made for a second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump.

National Intelligence Director Dan Coats also said that USA national security is threatened by climate change, while Trump thinks that global warming is not real.

Coats said the country is "not now undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activities we judge necessary to produce a nuclear device", but noted threats from some Iranian officials to reverse course if it does not receive the benefits it agreed to. On Wednesday, Trump responded with emphasis.

Pundits have expressed concern that Trump, who has complained about the cost of keeping 28,500 troops in the ally nation, could agree to pull them out as part of a new deal with the North. "Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!" he said in his harshest criticism of the powerful intelligence community of the country. According to CNN, Trump made his displeasure with the intelligence team clear on Twitter on January 30, but did not mention Coats by name in his tweets as he did verbally in the closed meeting.

He said he was making "tremendous progress" with North Korea.

The CIA and the Director of National Intelligence office did not comment on Trump's remarks. In May 2018, Trump withdrew the US from that accord, which he called a bad deal that would not stop Iran from going nuclear. But his list of concrete achievements has not grown in the months since that meeting, and his own intelligence chiefs believe there is little likelihood Kim will voluntarily give up his nuclear weapons or the missiles capable of carrying them.
