John Bolton claims North Korea summit was not a failure

North Korea's Kim Jong Un arrived home on Tuesday, state media said, completing his long journey through China after his Hanoi summit with US President Donald Trump ended without a nuclear deal.

President Moon Jae-in said he will revive his role as mediator between the adversaries after last week's summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un collapsed without agreement.

Bolton, in three television interviews on Sunday, tried to make that case that Trump advanced America's national security interests by rejecting a bad agreement while working to persuade Kim to take "the big deal that really could make a difference for North Korea".

Gleb Ivashentsev, Russia's former ambassador to North Korea, shared high praise for Kim on Russia's version of 60 Minutes.

Moon helped set up the first meeting between Trump and Kim last June when they agreed to a vague aspirational statement about a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula without describing how and when it would occur.

Trump said he was unsure whether the Saudi Crown Prince knew about the murder.

During the House Oversight Committee hearing, Cohen was harshly critical of his former boss, calling him a racist, con man and a cheat.

Trump has repeatedly complained about the cost of the exercises and - since 2017's Singapore summit - the Washington and Seoul have scaled back or scrapped several joint exercises.

But Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerold Nadler, who has been among those trying to keep Trump probes in sequence, said Sunday that the president had committed obstruction of justice.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said yesterday he was hopeful the United States would send a delegation to North Korea in the coming weeks.

U.S. State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told a news briefing that the United States remains "in regular contact" with North Korea, but he declined to say whether they had been in contact since the summit.

But Bolton's dodging response may be the most diplomatic thing the anti-diplomat has ever mustered; no doubt Trump will hear Bolton's words as praise for the "decision maker", brushing aside the parts where Bolton is unwilling to repeat Dear Leader's own conclusions.

The North Korean regime built an underground facility to produce components for highly enriched uranium cores for nuclear warheads at the Boonkang site, the newspaper said, citing multiple anonymous sources.
