Pompeo will meet with Kim during the trip, she said at a regular press briefing Monday.

Earlier, the State Department confirmed that a US delegation led by Sung Kim, the USA ambassador to the Philippines, met with North Korean counterparts at Panmunjom on the border between North and South Korea on Sunday "to discuss next steps on the implementation" of the summit declaration.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has appealed to China's Xi Jinping to help end sanctions against Pyongyang following his landmark summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, a Japanese newspaper reported Sunday, citing multiple unnamed sources in the two countries.

The department said in a statement Monday: "Our goal remains the final, fully verified denuclearization of the DPRK, as agreed to by Chairman Kim in Singapore". "I will just say this: Not answering the specific reports we've seen over the weekend ... we are using the full range of our capabilities to understand what North Korea is doing".

The Washington Post, citing intelligence sources who did not wish to be named, reported on Saturday that us intelligence officials have concluded that the Pyongyang regime has no intention of fully surrendering its nuclear stockpile, but was planning "to hide the number of weapons it has and secret production facilities".

Victor Cha, the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, also told Axios that the Trump administration "needs to get a commitment to a full declaration" and have international experts in North Korea "sealing stuff and installing cameras" to ensure North Korea sticks to its promises.

USA intelligence is not certain how many nuclear warheads North Korea has.

Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, White House national security adviser John Bolton said that Pompeo would be "discussing this with the North Koreans in the near future about really how to dismantle all of their WMD and ballistic missile programs in a year".

The top USA diplomat is expected to discuss with North Korean officials concrete measures that would see Pyongyang relinquish its nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles and possibly other weapons of mass destruction. The official was not authorized to comment publicly on the matter and requested anonymity.

Evidence collected since the pair's historic meeting points to secret production facilities and the development of methods to conceal weapons creation - implying Pyongyang is aiming to hide plans to continue its nuclear program from the U.S., having made contrary, if ambiguous, commitments to Washington.

A June 21 satellite image of North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear reactor suggests that the country is still improving its nuclear facilities.

"We would be able to dismantle the overwhelming bulk of their programmes within a year", Bolton said.

"I made a deal with him; I shook hands with him".

While Pyongyang has stopped missile and nuclear weapons tests, "there's no evidence that they are decreasing stockpiles or that they have stopped their production", an official told NBC News in the US.
