North Korea's nuclear weapons should be dismantled and sent to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee if Kim wants to see a relaxation of sanctions, John Bolton said during an interview on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

North Korea has set the date to begin shutting down a major nuclear test site as it continues to pursue improved relations with the world, earning thanks on Twitter from US President Donald Trump for "a very smart and gracious gesture!".

The South Korean government was in talks to finalise details for the meeting, said a ministry official, who declined to be named due to internal policy. However North Korea has argued for a more incremental denuclearization process that would provide immediate concessions for each denuclearization measure undertaken.

Pompeo told "Face the Nation" that his most recent trip to North Korea was created to lay the groundwork for President Trump's upcoming summit with Kim.

One expert told Business Insider the most likely outcome is that the talks produce a mediocre agreement that merely kicks the can down the road for North Korea's denuclearization.

However, top North Korea defector ... has said the North would never completely give up its nuclear weapons.

Earlier, North Korea announced that it would renounce nuclear weapons if the address of the country's threats and provocations.

Following the Moon-Kim meeting, Moon's office said Kim was willing to disclose the process to worldwide experts, but the North's statement Saturday didn't address allowing experts on the site.

Kim, who picked Beijing to make his maiden official trip overseas in March, has also invited Xi to visit North Korea.

"Whatever exactly the North Koreans hope to get out of the June summit, it doesn't sound like it overlaps very much with what Mike Pompeo is outlining", Pollack tweeted.

The development of North Korea's mineral exports, including billions of dollars worth of coal and iron, and capitalizing on the low wages in the impoverished state to expand clothing and light industry manufacturing, would be key attractions for foreign investment.

The secretary said he was "convinced" Kim shared U.S. goals.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser wants North Korea to ship all of its nuclear weapons to a USA lab in Tennessee, to make sure Kim Jong-un follows through on his promise to dismantle the program. "They are in great need of agricultural equipment and technology", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation".

"Those are the kind of things that, if we get what it is the President has demanded - the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of North Korea - that the American people will offer in spades". It is not clear how North Korean and US officials can resolve the differences over their positions.

The tone of Trump's rhetoric towards Kim has shifted dramatically over the past several months.
