Pres. Trump claims Cohen hearing may have hurt North Korea results

Pres. Trump claims Cohen hearing may have hurt North Korea results

US National Security Adviser John Bolton insisted Sunday that last week's nuclear summit with North Korea, which abruptly ended with President Donald Trump walking away without reaching an agreement, was not a failure.

After "extensive" preparations and discussions with the North Koreans, Bolton said "the issue really was whether North Korea was prepared to accept what the president called the 'big deal, ' which is denuclearization entirely, under a definition the president handed to Kim Jong Un, and have the potential for an enormous economic future, or try to do something less than that, which was unacceptable to us".

"He's not desperate for a deal - not with North Korea, not with anybody if it's contrary to American national interests", Bolton told Fox News Sunday.

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

Asked whether that was his view, too, Bolton replied: "The President's view is he gave nothing away. It seems like Chairman Kim's train has passed through the city", a source said, according to Yonhap. "I think the obligation of the president of the United States is to defend and advance American national security interests".


According to a senior U.S. official, Pyongyang in return offered only to close down "a portion of the Yongbyon complex", a sprawling site covering multiple nuclear facilities - and the North is believed to have other uranium enrichment plants.

In return, Pyongyang was only offering to close a portion of the Yongbyon complex, a sprawling site covering multiple different facilities - and the North is believed to have other uranium enrichment plants. I mean, they spent a lot of time building it and that doesn't mean the world has to be happy, ' Trump said.

Warmbier, an American student, was arrested in 2016 on a trip to North Korea for pulling down a pro-Kim-regime poster.

Do you think the decision by the defense authorities will be another factor that can stimulate the denuclearization efforts on the Korean peninsula?

"It was the sanctions that brought the North Koreans to the table".


The facilities produce hard currency for North Korea's cash-starved economy and need approval from various bodies including the U.S. Treasury and United Nations Security Council to open up again.

But Bolton added that there was "no expiration" date on the diplomatic track with North Korea and that the continuing nuclear production did not reduce Washington's leverage.

Trump has repeatedly complained about the cost of the exercises and - since 2017's Singapore summit - the Washington and Seoul have scaled back or scrapped several joint exercises. "But I do think what North Korea would benefit from most is a full description of what happened, a full accounting".

Opponents of scrapping the drills warn that it could affect the combat readiness of the combined USA and South Korean forces and hand the North a strategic advantage on the divided peninsula.
