According to the source, the United States and North Korea have had different opinions in their closed-door negotiations regarding the timing for the completion of denuclearization and the method of verification.
The White House's remarks follow on from similar positive remarks from U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who last week returned from his second trip to Pyongyang.
South Korean companies are exploring ways to invest in North Korea should the country relinquish is nuclear weapons, as Washington signals USA firms may also fund projects in the future. They were joined by Kim Dong Chul, an American who had been held in North Korea against his will for over 2 ½ years.
A former North Korean diplomat says the country will only pretend to give up their nuclear program.
At the forthcoming meeting of the us President Donald trump and the head of the DPRK Kim Jong-UN, both sides will discuss the economic Outlook for the Asian republics in the event of its refusal to develop nuclear weapons. State-run media has repeatedly chided the U.S. for saying North Korea must give up its weapons completely for sanctions relief, with a foreign ministry spokesman saying this month the USA was "deliberately provoking" the country.
"If the North Koreans are genuine and allow these intrusive inspections, then it works", said Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra.
That would put the U.S. and North Korea back to square one, but this time without the possibility of talking to pull them back from the brink of nuclear war.
During a central committee meeting of the Workers' Party last month, Kim vowed to focus on boosting the North's economy, which has been crippled by tightened worldwide sanctions, while suspending nuclear and missile tests and closing a key atomic experiment facility.
"It is regrettable that North Korea did not invite nuclear experts to the destruction of the test site", it said in an editorial. Bolton has often cited the Libya model, which involved Muammar Qaddafi shipping its nuclear weapons out of the country within a relatively short time period. "Those are the kind of things that if we get what it is the President has demanded - complete verifiable irreversible denuclearization of North Korea - that the American people will offer in spades".
It is a party-to-party meeting, according to the report.
