Trump adviser - some time may pass before a third North Korea summit

N. Korea ‘missile launch’ plans under scrutiny as concern mounts       	         		Posted

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

USA officials have since threatened to expand sanctions on North Korea, while commercial satellite images suggest Pyongyang is preparing another missile test or satellite launch.

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.

U.S. President Donald Trump is open to a third summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but some time may have to go by before this takes place, Trump's national security adviser said on Sunday.

He said Trump has been very clear that he views the absence of missile testing by North Korea as a positive sign of his negotiations with Kim and wouldn't be happy if the regime began conducting them again.

Bolton said that Trump would be very disappointed if there was another test launch from North Korea.

Trump and Kim's second summit in Vietnam last month broke down over differences on USA demands for Pyongyang's denuclearization and North Korea's demand for sanctions relief. And I don't think I will be, but we'll see what happens.

Bolton declined to say whether the USA was aware at the time of the Hanoi summit of any suspect satellite imagery from North Korea.

Biegun stressed that USA -led sanctions, which Pyongyang wants dropped, would remain in place until North Korea completed the process of denuclearization.

USA journalist detained by Venezuelan officers, then freed
She recalled the EU's leading role in setting up the worldwide contact group, where she said Germany plays an "active" role. Dozens of counties, including the USA and Canada, have recognized Guaido as Venezuela's legitimate leader.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) says Seoul is closely tracking and monitoring North Korea's missile activities in coordination with the United States.

Trump said on Friday he would be disappointed if Pyongyang were to resume weapons testing and reiterated his belief in his good relationship with Kim despite the collapse of the summit.

The DPRK has frozen nuclear and missile testing since 2017, and Trump has pointed to this as a positive outcome from almost a year of high-level engagement with the DPRK.

"The technology for making sure you put the satellite into the right orbit is the same technology for making sure the missile is on the right course", Lewis said, noting that previous North Korean launches used older technology.

"It's certainly our expectation that we will be able to continue our close engagement", he said, while offering no specifics on when new talks might be held. "He wants to make the right deal".

The Yongbyon complex is a critical part of North Korea's nuclear program, but the country is believed to maintain missiles, warheads and enrichment facilities in other areas as well.

The two leaders went around on this several times.

Besides potentially angering Trump, North Korea must avoid undercutting support for sanctions relief from China and Russian Federation.
