"We have a very good chemistry".

Washington and Pyongyang have yet to negotiate a plan for how North Korea will denuclearize.

President Donald Trump defended his denuclearization efforts with North Korea on Tuesday, despite the concerns of USA intelligence officials who say there is no evidence Kim Jong Un plans to give up his nuclear weapons programs.

The Secretary of State's departure to North Korea on Thursday comes during a period of mounting doubts Kim Jong-un is "trying to deceive" Washington. But U.S. intelligence agencies believe Pyongyang is concealing an unknown number, including smaller tactical nuclear weapons, in caves and other underground facilities around the country.

The Stanford team has proposed a 10-year roadmap, based on its belief that "North Korea will not give up its weapons and its weapons program until its security can be assured".
