Many analysts have suggested that the discussion about denuclearization means very different things to North Koreans than it does to American officials.
Kim's summit with Trump has captured intense global attention after a turn to diplomacy in recent months after serious fears of war past year amid North Korean nuclear and missile tests. He can't do that.

The former Central Intelligence Agency chief said US sanctions will remain in place until Washington verifies the North's denuclearization efforts.
