U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton says Washington is considering Libya's model of denuclearization in 2003 and 2004 for North Korea.
President Trump's top national security aide also reiterated that Pyongyang needs to dismantle all of its nuclear weapons before the U.S. makes any concessions.
Kim Hyo-sun tells us more.
Washington is considering using Libya's model of denuclearization as a benchmark during its negotiations with North Korea over its nuclear program.
That's according to White House National Security Advisor John Bolton,... who told Fox News on Sunday that the North has to give up all of its nuclear weapons before the U.S. gives the regime anything in return.

"We have very much in mind the Libya model from 2003, 2004. There are obviously differences. The Libyan program was much smaller. But that was basically the agreement that we made. And so we'll want to test North Korea in this first meeting for evidence that they have made that strategic decision."

Bolton also said that he believes a U.S.-North Korea summit is going to happen,... adding the two sides are still discussing the date and location.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed the same conditions.
In an interview with ABC News,... Pompeo said he sees a real opportunity to make a satisfactory deal with Pyongyang.

"The objective remains the same: complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization. That's been the administration's goal. President Trump has put economic pressure on the North Koreans and it appears to have given us this opening, this real opportunity for something that would be transformative for the world if we can achieve it."

Pompeo also highlighted Washington's obligation to engage in diplomacy with North Korea and seek a peaceful resolution to protect its people from the regime's nuclear threats.
He added that he had in-depth discussions with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on denuclearization when the two met in Pyongyang earlier this month.
