The two women, who have since been released, claimed they had been recruited to perform a stunt for a TV reality show.
It's extremely hard for outside governments and media to verify information about North Korea and members of its secretive ruling family because Pyongyang closely watches visitors and enforces a stringent information blockade on its citizens. "Kim Jong-nam provided information to them, usually meeting his handlers in Singapore or Malaysia".
"I'm concerned how Jong-un, who merely resembles my grandfather [former North Korean leader Kim Il-sung], will be able to satisfy the needs of North Koreans", he wrote.
Despite no formal dialogue between the two Koreas and between North Korea and the US, Moon said, such letters are being exchanged among their leaders.
Preventing the CIA from being able to recruit sources like Kim's late half-brother or highly placed North Koreans would deny the agency valuable insights into its leadership and threats to regional and US security.
Washington Post correspondent Anna Fifield, in a book published Tuesday, makes a similar assertion, citing "someone with knowledge of the intelligence who spoke on condition of anonymity".

Kim Yo Jong (R), sister of North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un, talks with Chung Eui-yong (2nd L), South Korea's top national security adviser, near the condolence flowers sent by the North Korean ruler for former South Korean First Lady Lee Hee-ho at the South Korean border village of Panmunjom in June 12.
Here are some of the major events since Kim and Trump shook hands a year ago.
Evans Revere, a nonresident senior fellow with the Brookings Institution in Washington, told UPI he doesn't expect progress anytime soon, despite Trump's latest revelation he received a "beautiful" letter from the North Korean leader. One can only speculate about the content of the "several conversations", but one must bear in mind the CIA's long record, not just of spying, but political provocations, plots and coups.
Pelicans Provide Framework For Anthony Davis Trade Package
After the season ended, however, Pelicans owner Gayle Benson said the team would trade Davis to the Lakers "over my dead body". This is a realistic scenario only if the Celtics choose to pursue this path, which is dependent on what Kyrie Irving does.
While Kim Jong Un's regime is permitted to import as much as 500,000 barrels of oil, the USA said Tuesday in a letter seen by Bloomberg News that the country has exceeded that amount through illicit ship-to-ship transfers. He described earlier letters as lovely and said that he and the North Korean leader have become in love with each other.
Trump rapidly ramped up the confrontation with Kim Jong-un, whom he derisively branded as "rocket man". "I think North Korea has tremendous potential".
The visit may quiet questions about the status of Kim Yo Jong after Kim Jong Un's reshuffle of his inner circle after a failed summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in February.
Since the breakdown of the Trump-Kim meeting in Vietnam, North Korea has expressed its displeasure by resuming short-range missile tests and issuing belligerent statements toward American and South Korean officials.
