US Secretary of State to meet North Korea’s No. 2 official
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday he will meet next week in New York with North Korea's number two, Kim Yong Chol, to resume denuclearization talks.
Announcing the meeting on Fox News Sunday, Pompeo said the meeting with the Vice Chairman of the Central Committee of the Worker's Party of Korea will be a good opportunity to continue the denuclearization discussions underway since US President Donald Trump's historic summit in June with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Pompeo's announcement follows a North Korean foreign ministry statement that the North will seriously consider reviving its nuclear weapons program unless US sanctions are lifted.
