Meanwhile, the US team wants to put some meat on the bone of the four-point declaration signed June 12 in Singapore by President Trump and Mr. Kim.

Bolton's comments come amid new reports that North Korea has moved to hide its nuclear weapons infrastructure.

Pompeo told CNN last week he would not put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea, but said the Trump administration will regularly assess the regime's seriousness about abandoning its nuclear program as the USA moves toward normalizing relations with Pyongyang.

The U.S. intelligence community has several ways to assess North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs, including satellite imagery, seismic sensors, and infrared systems.

Bolton said the "going to try and proceed to implement what the two leaders agreed to in Singapore", specifically "how to dismantle all of their WMD and ballistic missile programs in a year".

North Korea will have to back up its words with verifiable actions, Bolton said.

Recent revelations suggesting that North Korea is pressing forward with its nuclear missile program increase pressure on the Trump administration to wrest concrete concessions and denuclearization timelines from the communist state.

Nauert also confirmed that Pompeo has "at least a day and a half of meetings planned, depending on how the schedule goes" with the North Koreans.

Although face-to-face talks between the two parties resumed at the Demilitarized Zone over the weekend, new satellite imagery, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, showed North Korea has expanded a key missile-manufacturing plant - one that builds ballistic missiles that could target US military bases or allies in East Asia and re-entry vehicles with warheads that could reach the USA homeland, according to analysts from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif.

"We've had very clear conversations with them", Nauert added. A top U.S. diplomat had a meeting with members of a North Korean delegation on Sunday.

Intelligence officials and many North Korea experts have generally taken a more cautious view, noting that Kim'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.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has visited the special economic zone of Sinuiju. on the North Korean border with China.
