Chung Eui-yong, top national security advisor for Moon, met his US counterpart John Bolton in Washington ahead of the inter-Korean summit, the Blue House said.
But scepticism is rampant about whether Kim is ready to abandon the hard-earned nuclear arsenal his country has defended and developed for decades as what it says is a necessary deterrent against USA invasion. Kim and the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, also are set to meet on Friday.
Outgoing CIA Director Mike Pompeo is expected to clear his last hurdle to become secretary of state when the Senate votes midday Thursday to confirm him. Eventually, to the relief of many US officials who saw nuclear arsenals as the principal deterrent to a U.S.
