American blitzkrieg of North Korea's denuclearization stalled

If you look at the DPRK denuclearization from a technical point of view, then it can be completed within a year, but most likely this will not happen, TASS statement by the head of US National Intelligence Daniel Coates.

At a security forum held in the state of Colorado, Coates was asked to comment on the words of US Assistant President for National Security John Bolton, who said that Pyongyang’s nuclear program could be completely curtailed by one year.

Technically, this is of course possible, but most likely this will not happen,
said the head of intelligence.

Denuclearization is a difficult process, much more difficult than many people think, he added.

Coates recalled that the DPRK leadership had not always complied with the agreements reached in negotiations with previous administrations. Therefore, the current government is taking all possible measures to prevent this from happening again.

Touching upon the topic of sanctions against Pyongyang, he noted that almost all countries, including China and Russia, adhere to them.

I think that in Moscow and Beijing they see danger in North Korea, which has nuclear weapons,
noted Coates.

In June, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un were summed up in Singapore after the summit in Singapore, in which the North Korean leader declared his readiness to completely curtail the nuclear and missile programs. In turn, the United States pledged to provide security guarantees to Pyongyang as a reciprocal step.

    Strange guys, as always in words, one thing, but in reality an attempt to deprive the oil ... what is denuclearization?

      In September 1941, Emperor Hirohito violated the tradition of silence and made an appeal to categorically prevent war with the United States. "The sea must be in a calm state, the storm harms the sea" is a free translation of his metaphor. However, the Americans continued to tighten sanctions against Japan. By November-December 1941, strategic oil reserves in Japan were less than 4 months away, without any real prospects for replenishment in the required quantities.
      Inspired by historical parallels. Americans do not teach history well. But in vain ...

    Yes, he just had to stall, because North Korean men turned out to be really men, not Western gaskets.

      So far, nothing indicates that there are men in North Korea.

        Open your eyes. Kim has already proved that he definitely has something between the legs that many world politicians do not have. And not only western ones.
        They can collapse the nuclear / missile program. In words, as a last resort in practice .. But from the possession of nuclear weapons it is not clear. Today they have guarantees and tomorrow ..? The new president will say that Trump is crazy and it’s time to introduce democracy into Korea. What then. Therefore, the picture below is more relevant than your words.

    North Korea has spent too much effort on creating its own nuclear weapons and will not abandon it for any kind of carving.

    There is not a single word about the DPRK missile program in a document from Singapore. In addition, the US must provide security guarantees before denuclearization, and not later as a response step.
    First of all, the United States must change its hostile policy towards the DPRK - stop military exercises, lift all sanctions, sign a peace treaty and withdraw its troops from Korea. Later, when the DPRK has confidence in the United States, a discussion of denuclearization can begin. This is clearly indicated in the joint declaration from Singapore.

    And someone doubted that the states would keep their word? They only promised to think about lifting the sanctions and the rest. And between thinking and fulfilling the path is not close ....

    “I think that Moscow and Beijing see danger in North Korea, which possesses nuclear weapons,” Coates said.

    In fact, Coates should have realized that in Moscow and Beijing they see a much greater danger in a completely different country am possessing nuclear weapons - in the only one that used it (and exclusively against the civilian population) ...
