North Korea Mulls Ways To 'Conceal' Nuclear Weapons From U.S

Senator Mocks Trump Over North Korea Nuclear Program
The facility makes solid-fuel, ballistic missiles-which would be able to strike USA military installations in Asia with a nuclear weapon with little warning-as well as re-entry vehicles for warheads that Pyongyang might use on longer-range missiles able to hit the continental U.S.
"We would be able to dismantle the overwhelming bulk of their programmes within a year", Bolton said.
John Bolton said top USA diplomat Mike Pompeo will be discussing that plan with North Korea in the near future.
"I made a deal with him". "North Korea has a long history of cheating on agreements that it's made with previous administrations", she said on CNN's "State of the Union".
"The officials' assessments stand in stark contrast to that of US President Donald Trump, who declared following the June 12 summit with Kim that there is no longer a nuclear threat" from North Korea.
"The observed activity appears inconsistent with a North Korean intent to abandon its nuclear weapons programs", Bruce Klingner, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst and North Korea expert at the Heritage Foundation, told NBC.
"It would be physically possible to dismantle the bulk of North Korea's programs within a year", said Thomas Countryman, the State Department's top arms control officer under President Barack Obama.
'I do not believe it would be possible to verify full dismantlement within a year, nor have I yet seen evidence of a firm DPRK decision to undertake full dismantlement'.
The Wall Street Journal had a separate report saying North Korea is completing a major expansion of a key missile manufacturing plant.
Bolton agreed that North Korea "certainly" has a history of using diplomacy as a cover, but said "Kim Jong Un was very emphatic several times in Singapore that he was different from prior regimes".

Hopes were also high for finding some kind of access through fissures on the mountainside that might lead to shafts into the cave. James Wang, a member of the Chinese rescue team Green Boat Emergency Organisation, believed they could help with the operation.
The evidence collected aims to deceive the United States about the number of nuclear warheads in North Korea's arsenal as well as the existence of undisclosed facilities used to make fissile material for nuclear bombs, the officials told the Washington Post.
Activity also continues at a nearby building where plutonium.
Kim made the request during his 3rd meeting with Xi in Beijing last month, and the Chinese president promised to do his "utmost" to satisfy it, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said.
"Intelligence officials and many North Korea experts have generally taken a more cautious view, noting that leader Kim Jong Un's vague commitment to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula is a near-echo of earlier pledges from North Korean leaders over the past two decades, even as they accelerated efforts to build nuclear weapons in secret", Nakashima and Warrick reported.
"I don't want a war with North Korea", Graham said.
"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.
Kim Hyo-sun tells us more. The Defense Intelligence Agency is at the high end, with an estimate of about 50.
In both of his Sunday appearances, Bolton also refused to answer questions about reports from NBC News and the Washington Post, in which anonymous USA intelligence officials say North Korea has been ramping up its production of nuclear fuel at multiple secret sites and coming up with ways to deceive the us about the scale of its nuclear weapons program.
The US network, citing intelligence officials, said North Korea's regime was preparing to "extract every concession" from the White House rather than relinquishing its nuclear weapons.
