White House adviser Bolton urges North Korea to act on denuclearisation

In an April summit, President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to seek such declaration this year through three-way meetings involving the two Koreas and the United States or four-way talks involving the two Koreas, the U.S. and China.

North Korea appears to continue dismantling a rocket launching site, a USA think tank said, based on satellite images.

North Korea has repeatedly turned down a denuclearisation proposal made by the USA, the Vox news website reported on Wednesday, one that would have set a formal timeline to start the process by having Pyongyang cut its nuclear arsenal by 60 to 70 per cent within six to eight months, delivering the warheads to a third party.

In late June, the Pentagon indefinitely suspended military exercises with South Korean forces on the Korean Peninsula in an effort, initiated by Trump, to support the negotiations with North Korea.

Pyongyang's state media has highlighted it has made goodwill gestures, such as a moratorium on nuclear and missile tests, the dismantling of a nuclear site, and the return of the remains of USA soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

Declaring an end to the Korean War is "the demand of our time" and will be the "first process" toward a peace and security guarantee, the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Workers' Party of Korea, said in a commentary.

"The United States has lived up to the Singapore declaration".

White House national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday said U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was prepared to return to North Korea for another meeting with Kim.

In exchange, Vox said, the USA would lift economic sanctions and remove North Korea from its list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Each time, the North Korean negotiators, led by Kim Yong Chol - a top aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - have turned it down.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has caused global tension for decades and the rhetoric and threats from Kim and Trump had been especially hostile before their June meeting.
