N.K. leader offered denuclearization in 2 years
« on: September 10, 2018, 04:24:17 PM »


WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un offered to dismantle his nuclear weapons program within two years when he met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last spring, a top U.S. administration official said Monday.

According to U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton, Kim made the proposal during his first meeting with the South Korean leader in April. He then backed down and accepted Moon's counterproposal to denuclearize within a year.

"He said we can do it in two years," Bolton said in a speech to the Federalist Society. "Moon Jae-in said to Kim Jong-un -- and President Moon told this to President Trump -- Moon Jae-in said, 'Well, why don't we do it in one year.'"

   Kim agreed, Bolton said, adding that that caused him to remark in the past about pushing for denuclearization in a year.

"I thought they could do it even more quickly than that, but one year is not bad," he said. "We're still waiting for them."

There's no doubt he wants something (extra) if he's willing to speed up the process.
