North Korea 'owes full explanation over Otto Warmbier's death'

The White House national security adviser on Sunday described President Donald Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a success despite the lack of an agreement providing for verifiable dismantling of the North's nuclear sites.

North Korea has restored part of a missile launch site it began to dismantle after pledging to do so in a first summit with U.S. President Donald Trump a year ago, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency and a U.S. think tank reported on Tuesday.

Bolton, in three television interviews, tried to make the case that Trump advanced America's national security interests by rejecting a bad agreement while working to persuade Kim to take "the big deal that really could make a difference for North Korea".

South Korea's intelligence agency says it is aware of the existence. of all North Korean nuclear facilities and is closely monitoring them with the U.S.

"So the president held firm to his view".

Gleb Ivashentsev, Russia's former ambassador to North Korea, shared high praise for Kim on Russia's version of 60 Minutes. "I don't view it as a failure at all when American national interests are protected".

At the meeting, South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said the proposed talks, which could include civilian experts from the US and South Korea, would help settle differences over how much sanctions relief Washington should provide to North Korea in exchange for nuclear disarmament steps. Trump, disapproving of the offer from Kim, walked out of the meetings.

Signs that North Korea had begun acting on its pledge to Trump were detected in July, when a Washington think tank said satellite images indicated work had begun at Sohae to dismantle a building used to assemble space-launch vehicles and a nearby rocket engine test stand used to develop liquid-fuel engines for ballistic missiles and space-launch vehicles.

During the House Oversight Committee hearing, Cohen, who has turned on Trump and has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress earlier to protect Trump, was harshly critical of his former boss, calling him a racist, a con man, and a cheat.

Trump said he believed Kim's claim that he did not know what happened to Otto Warmbier, who died at age 22 days after being sent back to the United States in 2017.

Asked during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" whether he takes Kim at his word, Bolton replied, "My opinion doesn't matter".

But the president never specifically but the blame on Kim, which many lawmakers and Warmbier's family said the blame is to fall.

The meetings are to take place Tuesday through Thursday in Washington.

The United States and South Korea scaled back military exercises in the wake of the Hanoi summit. -South Korea joint exercises as aggressive provocation and rehearsals for war. These projects provided much-needed cash to North Korea before the South shut them down during past periods of tensions.
