Trump contradicts national security advisor
US President Donald Trump has appeared to contradict his own national security advisor.
He confirmed to reporters that the “Libya model” for denuclearisation is not being pursued with North Korea.
John Bolton had earlier made the suggestion, angering Pyongyang and leading to them threatening to pull out next month’s North Korea-US summit.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed by Western-backed rebels after agreeing to give up his country’s nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.
