US News Agency Associated Press cites the statement of the CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who spoke on the nuclear status of the DPRK. According to Pompeo, North Korea "is only a few months away from a significant improvement in the state of its nuclear potential."


CIA Director: There is no opportunity to obtain accurate data on the Pyongyang nuclear program


Speaking at the Washington Security Forum, Mike Pompeo stated that he puts the idea in his words that there is a significant difference between the ability to launch a single missile with a single warhead and the creation of a large number of carriers with multiple atomic warheads.

Further, the director of the CIA complained that his department did not actually cope with the tasks of timely obtaining intelligence data from North Korea. According to Pompeo, there is an “imperfect level of ability to obtain data on the DPRK nuclear program.”

Pompeo:
It is not possible to accurately determine the real possibility of North Korea in terms of possessing substantial nuclear potential.

All these statements were clearly aimed at increasing the funding of the Pompeo office and of him from the American budget.

Pompeo further stated that the process could be helped by China.

Pompeo:
China has done much to deter Pyongyang, and it can do even more.

      CIA Director: There is no opportunity to obtain accurate data on the Pyongyang nuclear program
      translated into Russian: America is afraid of the unknown, and therefore, there will be no strike on North Korea, but there will be another grandiose cut of funds "for defense."

        Of course they will not climb, because they have already received on the mustals .. And the "hegemon" really does not want to ogresti again. Here can set the allies on. These mongrels can carry out the orders of the master. Only what will this result in the same Republic of Korea?

      And rightly so. Because:
      It is not possible to accurately determine the real possibility of North Korea in terms of possessing substantial nuclear potential.

      Anything that is incomprehensible and dangerous must be neutralized.

      All these statements were clearly aimed at increasing the funding of the Pompeo office and of him from the American budget.

      And where does this follow? The author has a strange logic.

    Around the bush. Chinese people to bribe for info? - They will take it, but they will not say the important thing. And a few months, from a significant improvement in the state of the DPRK's nuclear potential, will it bring much? Let them turn to their scientists - nuclear scientists - how much time and operation of a nuclear power plant is needed to obtain the necessary material, to create one nuclear charge. Unless someone secretly sells.

    It looks like the CIA realized that in this situation with the DPRK it is possible to try to knock out additional and not sickly funding, arguing that there is no money, and therefore information about the DPRK is "Impossible to get"
