Trump adviser - some time may pass before a third North Korea summit

US think tanks and Seoul's spy agency said last week that North Korea was rebuilding a rocket launch site.

Kim also participated at a polling station at Kim Chaek University of Technology in Pyongyang after arriving there at 11 a.m., the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

The two leaders went around on this several times.

But some analysts suggest the North might be stage-managing activity at certain key sites, to stoke concern and secure "better terms" when the two sides next meet.

Bolton said that Trump would be very disappointed if there was another test launch from North Korea. Now, in terms of China specifically, you know, we just concluded another round of negotiations here in Washington, Bob Lighthizer, the USA trade representative, Steven Mnuchin, the treasury secretary, and others leading that, he said.

Located on the outskirts of Pyongyang, the Samundong facility was built in 2012 to support development of long-range missiles and space-launch vehicles.

It remains unclear at this point, if the possible launch would be for a missile or a satellite rocket.

Satellite images of Samundong taken on February 22 showed cars and trucks at the site, as well as rail cars and cranes at a yard, U.S. news outlet NPR reported.

"And, in exchange for that, there was a very bright economic future for the North Korean people", Bolton said.

"The North's intention is clear".

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shake hands at their summit in Hanoi last month. "It wants early resumption of talks with the USA, but on better terms".

Defense Ministry spokeswoman Choi Hyun-soo also declined to say whether a provocative action by the North is imminent or if the recently observed activities in the North are only warnings against joint military exercises between Seoul and Washington.

In an interview with ABC, US NSA Bolton said that he will be talking with his South Korean counterpart Monday morning.

Leader Kim Jong Un's ruling Workers' Party has an iron grip on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), as the isolated, nuclear-armed country is officially known.

Donald Trump would be "pretty disappointed" if North Korea launches a new rocket or carries out a missile test, national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday.

"We've seen a lot in North Korea", he said. "It's a sobering reminder that without an agreement that verifies the dismantlement of North Korea's program, we can easily go back to a period of 'fire and fury" rhetoric".

"There is a serious risk of drift, and the North Koreans do appear to be sending a signal with the operations at Sohae that, "Yes, we can reverse our nuclear and ballistic missile-testing halt, ' " said Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association".
