Pompeo to Meet North Korean Counterpart on DenuclearizationNovember 1, 2018
The Wall Street Journal:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plans a meeting next week with a North Korean counterpart to push for progress on denuclearization and arrange for a second summit meeting between the two countries’ leaders.
U.S. officials have met regularly with counterparts in Japan and South Korea, and Mr. Pompeo said a second summit between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un could yield a “substantial breakthrough in taking down the nuclear threat from North Korea.”
The meeting next week, acknowledged by Mr. Pompeo in a radio interview on Wednesday with conservative commentator Laura Ingraham, was previously reported by South Korea’s semiofficial Yonhap news agency but not confirmed by the State Department.
