South Korea's Moon calls for quick resumption of nuclear talks

South Korea's Moon calls for quick resumption of nuclear talks

During an interview on Sunday, Bolton defended the President in "protecting and advancing" American national interests while in Hanoi. He argued that Trump's policies "gave him [Kim] stature for him to walk in and do what he did" during the summit last week.

The U.S. National Security Advisor also further expanded on the negotiations at the summit in Vietnam, saying that Trump had offered Kim what he termed "the big deal", complete denuclearization under Washington's definition in exchange for an "an enormous economic future".

The UN Security Council has so far restricted sanctions exemptions to non-commercial infrastructure projects and would likely need to pass an entirely new resolution on North Korea for inter-Korean economic activities to resume, which is hard to imagine until Kim takes deeper steps toward completely and verifiably relinquishing his nuclear weapons, said Lim Soo-ho, an analyst at the Seoul-based Institute for National Security.

"He's not desperate for a deal, not with North Korea, not with anybody if it's contrary to American national interests", Bolton said. "And Kim Jong Un is not going to read this-I don't care how the administration spins this-that's not how Kim Jong Un is gonna read it".

Although Trump did not say exactly how the Cohen hearings affected the summit, he said, "Such things are never done when a president is overseas. Dismantling of the Yongbyon nuclear facility, which is the foundation of North Korea's nuclear facilities, verified and observed by the U.S., is within sight", Moon said.

Bolton also appeared on CNN's State of the Union, where he defended Trump who said he took Kim "at his word" when the North Korean leader claimed he knew nothing about the alleged torture of imprisoned US student Otto Warmbier.

"... The president held firm to his view".

Moon, who has adopted a dovish approach to Pyongyang and brokered the US-North Korea talks process, urged his officials to find out what exactly had gone awry at the high-stakes meeting, and predicted a deal would ultimately be reached.

Congressman Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, summarised the summit as a "spectacular failure" made all the worse by Trump's comments on "murder of an American citizen, Otto Warmbier".

It is not necessarily true that the North Korean summit was a failure, however; for the North Koreans, it appears to have again been a rousing, if inexplicable, success.

() United States national security adviser John Bolton. USA officials have long said the spring exercises, known as Foal Eagle and Key Resolve, would be reduced in scope as the countries embraced smaller-scale drills.

Trump said he walked away from his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un because Kim demanded the US lift all of its sanctions, a claim that North Korea's delegation called a rare news conference in the middle of the night to deny.

Bolton said Trump has "turned traditional diplomacy on its head, and after all in the case of North Korea, why not?" I give my advice to the president.

"That was my position long before I became president", Trump tweeted Sunday while adding "reducing tensions with North Korea at this time is a good thing".
