Trump changes course, says he and intel chiefs in agreement

Office of the Director of National Intelligence Director Daniel Coats testifies at a hearing in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in Congress in Washington

'Go back to school': Trump lashes out at US intelligence chiefs

Biegun's claim has not been confirmed by the North Korean government.

Other ASEAN venues have also been mentioned of possibilities to be the summit venue though Singapore was the venue for the first Trump-Kim meeting in June previous year. During the president and Kim's first meeting in Singapore, Kim promised to denuclearize.

Iran appears to be the only region in which USA intelligence doesn't see a clear and present danger - ISIS, China, North Korea, even the United Kingdom all pose dangers to the American empire for this or that reason, according to the spy chiefs. "Happily, we had a very good meeting, and we are all on the same page!".

US President Donald Trump speaks to reporters at the White House on Thursday.

The month of February will be critical to the denuclearization of North Korea, a high-level South Korean official familiar with the matter said Thursday.

The agreement committed the North to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees for Pyongyang, without laying out concrete steps.

US Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Tuesday told a US Senate committee that the intelligence community "continues to assess that it [North Korea] is unlikely to give up all of its WMD [weapons of mass destruction] stockpiles, delivery systems and production capabilities".

Insisting that Iran's nuclear programme remains risky, Trump said his intelligence advisers -who believe Tehran is largely abiding by an worldwide commitment to shelve nuclear weapons ambitions - should be more realistic.

Vietnam said last week it had not been informed about any time or venue for a possible Trump-Kim summit, but that it was confident in its ability to host such a meeting.

What is most notable in the Report was that they are nearly all in stark contradiction to the Statements of U.S. President Donald Trump. "Since ending the awful Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but.a source of potential danger and conflict". "And I think it only proves something that troubles me deeply, is that this President is someone that doesn't want to learn".

He said all these details would have to be addressed in working-level negotiations if the conditions were to be put in place "to fundamentally transform the US-North Korean relations and establish peace on the Korean peninsula".

North Korea has traditionally viewed it as a term meaning not only the elimination of its nuclear arsenal but also the end of the US nuclear umbrella over South Korea.

Mr Biegun said that the USA administration was "clear-eyed" and prepared for contingencies if talks fail.

In contrast, President Trump has stated that there is "a decent chance" of North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons.

"We do have a well-developed view inside the United States of America on what this entails, but that's something that over time you'll also have to come to agreement with the North Koreans on".

If diplomacy doesn't work, the USA has unspecified "contingencies", he added.
