John Bolton says Vietnam Summit was 'Unquestionably a Success'

"Given how much has been done at this site, it looks like more than a couple days' worth of activity", said Jenny Town, managing editor of 38 North, a website devoted to analysis of North Korea.

Bolton's evocation of progress was dismissed by leading Democrats, however, including House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, who described the Hanoi meeting as a "spectacular failure".

Bolton also said the potential for denuclearization remains with President Trump, previously extending he would like to keep the relationship between the USA and North Korea.

Washington and Seoul announced on Sunday that they will eliminate massive annual springtime military drills and replace them with smaller exercises, in what they called an effort to support diplomacy with North Korea. Given the site has lain dormant for months, Bermudez believes the work probably took place after February 28, when the Trump-Kim summit concluded unsuccessfully.

The comment came in response to questions about President Donald Trump's claim that he takes North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un "at his word" that he was not responsible for American Otto Warmbier's death.

"From both a process and a substance standpoint, I think the summit was doomed from the get-go", Clapper, now a CNN analyst, told the network Tuesday of the Trump-Kim meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam.

He said the issue was whether North Korea would accept what the president called "the big deal" - total denuclearization - or something less, "which was unacceptable to us".

But Bolton maintained Sunday that Trump is "not desperate for a deal - not with North Korea, not with anybody - if it's contrary to American national interests".

"This the result of a president who is not prepared for these kind of negotiations, a staff that is not well-prepared and that is essentially flying by the seat of its trousers", Schiff said on Face the Nation.

Moon said South Korea will continue to push ahead with engagement with North Korea within the boundaries of USA -led global sanctions against the North. Clapper said they're important for South Korean defense.

In some ways, the world breathed a sigh of relief when Trump backed off from mocking Kim as "little Rocket Man" and threatening to meet North Korea with "fire and fury".

Bolton was touring the Sunday political shows the morning after the US and South Korea announced an end to key annual large-scale military exercises.

"All North Korean ballistic missiles today, maybe with one or two exceptions, can be launched from mobile launchers", he says.

The NIS also said that the military authorities of South Korea and the United States have run a "thorough" monitoring system to keep track of the North's nuclear and missile facilities, including its uranium enrichment sites that were apparently brought up in nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang.

On Monday, Russian media reports said members of a parliamentary group that deals with Russia's relations with North Korea will visit Pyongyang on April 12.

"This is, I think, the result of a president who is not prepared for these kind of negotiations, a staff that is not well-prepared and that is essentially flying by the seat of its trousers, and it has real-world consequences", Schiff said.
