We won't invade North Korea: US envoy

Earlier in the prepared remarks, Biegun touched on this point in response to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's call for the U.S.to make "corresponding measures" to DPRK steps towards denuclearization.

However, he hammered in his concerns about Iran and stressed that their rocket testing is a risky sign.

Trump cited Iranian rocket launches and said that Tehran was "coming very close to the edge". Since ending the awful Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict.

'I believe it is incumbent on you, Director Wray and Director Haspel to impress upon him how critically important it is for him to join you and the leadership of our Intelligence Community in speaking with a unified and accurate voice about national security threats'.

However, he said: "If we are doing the right thing on nuclear weapons, it makes it a lot more conceivable that there would be a permanent peace regime on the Korean Peninsula". North Korea would also have to provide a "comprehensive declaration" of its weapons of mass destruction and missile programs - something it has so far refused to do in talks, even sparking outrage among its negotiators during a meeting with Pompeo last July.

Trump a year ago pulled out of an worldwide nuclear deal with Iran put in place under his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, saying Tehran was "not living up to the spirit" of the agreement, and re-imposed sanctions.

US President Donald Trump reversed course Thursday, claiming he and the American intelligence community are "in agreement" after branding them "naive" and in need of schooling the day before.

October 12, 2018 - Rapper-producer Kanye West said Foxconn has "4,000 jobs, people making $53,000 a year" in Wisconsin. Under the contract, however, Wisconsin would stop some payouts if Foxconn did not stick to its word.

He said: "We now assess that North Korea will seek to retain its WMD capabilities and is unlikely to completely give up its nuclear weapons and production capabilities because its leaders ultimately view nuclear weapons as critical to regime survival".

The comments come just weeks ahead of an anticipated second summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump then delivered a slap to the face of USIC: "Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!".

He alluded to a statement by CIA Director Gina Haspel, who said that Iran was complying with the landmark nuclear treaty, which Trump has thrashed as "horrible" and "disastrous" before ultimately leaving it. Biegun also credited the North Korean leader with agreeing to dismantle two military installations and open them to outside inspections. Vietnam said last week it had not been informed about any time or venue for a possible Trump-Kim summit, but that it was confident in its ability to host such a meeting.

The USIC briefing before the Senate reflected the collective insights of the Intelligence Community about the biggest security threats now facing the United States.

In a series of tweets, Trump boasted about the "tremendous progress" against ISIS. They're gone. We're defeating them all over the Middle East intelligence community says, yeah, that didn't happen. They are wrong!" Trump tweeted,adding: "Be careful of Iran.

Trump has given the Pentagon about four months to withdraw US troops from Syria, backtracking from his abrupt December order for a pullout within 30 days.
