Senior officials at the State Department told CNN that U.S. and North Korean representatives met on Sunday for the first time since last month's summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to discuss implementing the agreement signed by both leaders.
The backdrop: President Trump's national security adviser John Bolton said on CBS' "Face the Nation" earlier Sunday that "the overwhelming bulk" of North Korea's nuclear weapons program could be dismantled "within a year" if Kim's regime chooses to cooperate. However, The Washington Post reported on Saturday said U.S. intelligence officials believe that North Korea has no intentions of giving up the entirety of its nuclear weapons cache.
