North Korea nuclear deal: Pompeo sees 'progress' after talks
08 July, 2018, 10:27
"We talked about what the North Koreans are continuing to do and how it's the case that we can get our arms around achieving what Chairman Kim and President Trump both agreed to, which is the complete denuclearisation of North Korea".
Pompeo and Kim Yong Chol, a top adviser to the country's leader and a former spy chief, exchanged pleasantries Saturday after having had a cordial and relaxed meetingFriday night, but the usa secretary of state didn't seem pleased with Kim's forwardness. Mr Pompeosaid he "slept just fine". "I'm counting on Chairman Kim to be determined to follow through on the commitment that he made". "I appreciate that and I look forward to our continued conversations today as well".
Nauert said Pompeo was being "very firm" in seeking three basic goals from the visit: the complete denuclearization of North Korea, security assurances and the repatriation of fallen soldiers. "There are things that I have to clarify", he said.
Mr Kim ended Mr Pompeo's visit on a positive note, telling the top U.S. diplomat just before he boarded his plane, "We will produce an outcome, results". When asked about the apparent tensions, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said, "There's a lot of hard work to be done".
Pompeo met for almost three hours Friday with a senior North Korean official in Pyongyang to nail down specifics of commitments on denuclearization made at Trump's summit with Kim. She said the dinner lasted an hour and 45 minutes and at times the two were "cracking jokes" and "exchanging pleasantries".
During the second day of his visit, an expected meeting between Pompeo and Kim Jong-un failed to materialize.
"We did have very serious discussion on very important matters yesterday", Kim said.

In the 11th minute of extra-time Domagoj Vida nodded in, before Fernandes brought things level once again. It was a match that, frankly, was pretty boring for the first 30 minutes.
The Secretary told reporters that they made progress in every element of their discussion, . but did not elaborate on whether a timeline has been set for North Korea's "complete denuclearization".
And he said some progress had been made towards agreeing "the modalities" of North Korea's destruction of a missile facility.
Pompeo wanted to agree on at least an initial list of nuclear sites and an inventory that could be checked against the available intelligence, US intelligence officials told Reuters earlier. She said the two sides had also discussed the return of the remains of U.S. troops killed during the Korean War. He added that the Trump administration was committed to reaching a deal under which North Korea would denuclearise and realise economic benefits in return.
The harsh statement also illustrates the risks of putting so much stock in a ceremonial summit, now that last month's meet-and-greet between Trump and Kim in Singapore is colliding with the hard-nosed reality of enormously complex nuclear negotiations.
Some officials in the State and Defense Departments and in USA intelligence agencies are anxious that Trump has put himself at a disadvantage by overstating the results of the Singapore summit.
Instead, North Korea came out of the talks saying the whole two-day visit was "regrettable", and that they find America's attitude toward the diplomatic process "extremely troubling".
It said the measures the US had taken, . such as the suspension of joint military exercises are reversible, . and can not be compared to Pyongyang exploding and shutting down nuclear and missile test sites. "This really shows the unwavering bond of the Japan-U.S. alliance", Abe said.
