Second Trump-Kim summit planned for Vietnam, source says

Kim Jong-un has strived to improve relations with South Korea in the past year, seeking a formal end to the Korean War, which ended with a truce in 1953.

US President Donald Trump has called top US intelligence chiefs "extremely passive and naive", even suggesting they "should go back to school".

Biegun also said, "I am absolutely convinced, and more importantly, the president of the United States is convinced, that it's time to move past 70 years of war and hostility in the Korean Peninsula", saying this has bipartisan support in the United States. "They very much want the meeting".

'There economy is now crashing, which is the only thing holding them back. Be careful of Iran.

"Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!" he said in a series of tweets.

Trump highlighted the points of contention between him and the intelligence community, he stressed that the USA has made progress in respect to ISIS, North Korea, and talks in Afghanistan.

But there are still sceptics on the Korean peninsula and in the US. He said in another tweet that they were "all on the same page".

Trump will likely make the announcement in his State of the Union speech scheduled for February 5.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity the official said North Korea's attitude toward related issues appears to have changed from the past and that concerned parties must strive to keep momentum alive. Since then tremendous progress made, especially over last 5 weeks.

This week, the Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, told the Senate Intelligence Committee that "North Korea is unlikely to give up all of its nuclear weapons and production capabilities".

Responding to questions, Mr Biegun said the U.S. would not lift sanctions until North Korean denuclearisation was complete, but added: "We did not say we will not do anything until you do everything".

President Trump lashed out at top US intelligence officials on Wednesday, a day after they contradicted his assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat in a joint appearance before Congress.

While the consensus among analysts is that the terrorist group has been significantly weakened from the height of its power, Coats said ISIS will look to use guerilla warfare to "very likely continue to pursue external attacks from Iraq and Syria against regional and Western adversaries, including the United States".

Biegun admitted that the United States and North Korea did not have an agreed definition of denuclearisation, but was blunt about USA expectations and said Trump had made clear he expected "significant and verifiable progress on denuclearisation" to emerge from the next summit.

The debate is somewhat weird, but hardly surprising: at the start of the week, the USA intelligence community presented their traditional annual reports.

"Iran is not now undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activities we judge necessary to produce a nuclear device", it read. He met with Haspel, Coats, and Deputy Director of National Intelligence Edward Gistaro in the Oval Office that afternoon, tweeting a picture of their conversation.

This was far from the first time Trump has publicly doubted his national security experts. "They deserve a president's respect, not his/her public rebuke, which only serves to help our adversaries".
