CIA chiefs have reportedly warned Donald Trump there is only a “three-month window” in which the US can halt North Korea’s missile programme.

During a visit to London and the House of Commons, former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton told officials the CIA has warned the US President America could soon be within striking distance from Pyongyang missiles, according to the Guardian.

The March deadline, was also mentioned to a former European parliamentarian by a senior US commander a few days ago at Panmunjom on Korea’s demilitarised zone, which separates the North from the South.

Mr Bolton, who served under George W Bush, has recently been giving a series of warnings during appearances on US TV networks.

During an interview on Fox News at the end of last month, he warned that diplomatic options were running out after North Korea fired a new kind of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and Kim claimed the Hwasong-15 can be armed with a nuclear warhead and could strike the United States mainland.

Mr Bolton said this test-launch was “significant” because, if the early estimates are confirmed, it leaves no doubt that Pyongyang is “getting very close” to being able to threaten the US with a nuclear attack.

He said: ”You have to ask when we’re going to start seriously considering a military option.

“There is no time for this [sanctions] to have impact. Look, if the State Department is still focused on sanctions, then I will guarantee you. I’ll bet the ranch right now North Korea will have deliverable nuclear weapons.

“The one diplomatic play that’s left here is with China. Presumably, the president delivered that message, which should be something like, Look Xi Jinping, we can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way.

“China has a unique capability to bring that regime in North Korea down, to reunite the two Koreas, to put in a new regime, to get rid of the nuclear weapons, but there isn’t any time to talk to North Korea about it, because they will use additional time to cross the nuclear finish line.

“And so that’s why I say, do you want a North Korea that has that capability, that can be a one-stop shopping place for thermo-nuclear weapons, ballistic technology for Iran and for ISIS, for any would-be nuclear state around the world, or would we take the obviously undesirable but potentially necessary step of using military force?”

The willingness of China to get fully embroiled in the stand-off between the US and North Korea has been questioned by Professor Steve Tsang, the director of the China Institute at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), who told Express.co.uk that China had no reason to get involved.

He said: “Chinese leader Xi Jinping has no incentive to do it. The Chinese policy is simply to contain the problem over North Korea, not to resolve it.
