Joel Wit, a former diplomat who helped the USA negotiate with North Korea including a nuclear agreement between the US and the regime in 1994, said the USA believed the rogue regime had two sites to "enrich nuclear fuel" including Yongbyon and another, but the name of the center was not revealed.

Like many North Korea observers, he has been skeptical of Pyongyang's sincerity about denuclearization and has pointed out that the administration faces considerable challenges and questions on the issue following the Trump-Kim summit.

"I'll make my utmost efforts", Xi responded, according to the sources. "I really believes he means it".
Last week, Trump underscored the point of "total denuclearization", while noting that it "has already started taking place".
"I think it would be inappropriate and, frankly, counterproductive to achieving the end state that we're hoping to achieve", Pompeo said. "We had a very good chemistry".
"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.
