North Korea unlikely to give up nuclear weapons, U.S. intelligence official says
"We continue to observe activity inconsistent with full denuclearization," Coats tells Senate

North Korea is unlikely to fully give up its nuclear capabilities and is conducting ongoing activities inconsistent with full denuclearization, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Daniel Coats submitted to a U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday.

The comments were contained within a report submitted by Coats prior to the hearing, at which he was joined by the Directors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
