The talks were the first face-to-face conversations between the two countries since the summit last month between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and were held to work on implementing the agreement reached between the two leaders, the officials said.
"We have developed a program", said Bolton.
"Addressing the human rights nightmare in North Korea must be a top priority", House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said Wednesday. The officials told NBC that North Korea is attempting to "deceive" the United States about the numbers and types of warheads, missiles, and facilities it has.
"There's not any starry-eyed feeling among the group doing this", he added. Ahead of the Singapore summit, Pompeo said Trump would reject anything short of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization".
Soon after, he began mocking Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man", both on Twitter and even in a speech before the United Nations. "Now we'll let their actions speak for themselves".
"Have I been in deals, have you been in things where, people didn't work out?" Asked whether Bolton would join Pompeo for the trip to Pyongyang, she said, "Not to my awareness".
Analyst Hong Min at Seoul's Korea Institute for National Unification downplayed the significance of the new disclosures, saying Pyongyang and Washington haven't yet agreed on detailed disarmament steps the North is obliged to take.
North Korea has consistently refused in past rounds of failed negotiations to provide an inventory of its weapons program and US intelligence remains uncertain of how many nuclear warheads North Korea has.
US President Donald Trump has once again baffled the global community, as he claimed that it was him who actually saved the world from a potentially devastating conflict between Washington and Pyongyang. That's how they got as far as they have in ballistic and weapons technology.
Trump has come under fire from critics who contend he has given Russia a pass on election interference and has not done enough to counter expected Russian meddling in the upcoming midterm elections. Trump tweeted on Tuesday. Through an interpreter, Putin denied meddling by the "Russian state", Putin said.
