'Very Disappointed' if North Korea Resumes Nuclear Testing

At the meeting, it appears likely that U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun laid out to the representatives from Tokyo and Seoul what happened at the failed February 27-28 summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi.

The Kim-Trump meeting in Hanoi is their second summit, since they met for the first time in Singapore last June.

The footage's release on Wednesday night came amid reports that North Korea is restoring some facilities at its long-range rocket launch site that it dismantled a year ago as part of disarmament steps.

U.S. President Donald Trump once again reiterated that he would be "very disappointed",. if testing was resumed.

After a week ago's fumbled nuclear summit in Vietnam, Beijing is stressed President Donald Trump may leave the negotiating table.

The news comes at a hard time for the Trump administration, which is already frustrated by the lack of progress on negotiations with the North, following the collapse of the second Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam's capital.

But North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong-ho disputed the USA account, saying Pyongyang offered to dismantle all "nuclear production facilities in the Yongbyon area" in exchange for partial sanctions relief.

"In our judgment, (the) launch of a space-launch vehicle from that site ... would be inconsistent with the commitments that the North Koreans have made", the senior official said.

Analysts say that Kim Jong Un had a lot invested in the summits, and didn't want to be seen as failing in the immediate wake of the summit.

What we learned from this was that the North Korean nuclear issue is thorny, with no straightforward solutions. "That means taking out all key parts of their nuclear fuel cycle, removing all their fissile material, removing their nuclear warheads, removing or destroying all their intercontinental ballistic missiles, and permanently freezing any other weapons of mass destruction programs", he said.
