Energy Secretary Rick Perry said his department will play a lead role if President Donald Trump's talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are successful.

"There's been planning going on for this for some time," Perry said in an interview broadcast on CNN's "New Day" program. "The Department of Energy will play an integral role.

"They're the lead agency if we're successful, which we hope the president is in his negotiations to allow for the denuclearization of the peninsula.

"The plans have been worked on for weeks," he added.

Meanwhile, the size of North Korea's nuclear arsenal remains uncertain. 

Estimates range from 10 bombs to as many as 60-70.
