Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to North Korea next month to arrange President Trump’s second summit with dictator Kim Jong Un, the State Department announced Wednesday.
Pompeo met with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho Wednesday morning, a meeting that was scheduled after South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s recent trip to Pyongyang. Moon’s meetings with Kim jumpstarted a high-level dialogue that had stalled as North Korea demanded economic concessions from the United States, in advance of major steps to dismantle the Kim regime’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Secretary Pompeo accepted Chairman Kim’s invitation to travel to Pyongyang next month to make further progress on the implementation of the commitments from the U.S.-DPRK Singapore summit, including the final, fully verified denuclearization of the DPRK, and to prepare for a second summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.
