Undeterred by a blistering rebuke of his efforts to forge a denuclearization deal with North Korea, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Sunday appealed for North Korea's leadership to follow Vietnam's path in overcoming past hostilities with the United States.

I have confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake.
Leaked U.S. intelligence findings have concluded that North Korea does not intend to give up its nuclear programme completely.
President Trump has sought to downplay doubts about the denuclearization process with North Korea.
During that meeting, leaders will also address the destruction of a missile-testing facility in North Korea, which was first brought up during the summit in Singapore.
The KCNA article read that the North expected the USA would bring a "constructive proposal" meant to help build mutual trust, which the regime was planning to respond to by "doing something" that "corresponds with it".
The statement came shortly after Pompeo said he had made progress "on nearly all of the central issues" in the talks, including on setting a timeline for its denuclearisation, though more work remained to be done.
Trump Insists He Will Be 'Prepared' for Putin Meeting
Although Russia failed to book a semi-final encounter with England, Cherchesov claimed Putin was impressed by their display. Cherchesov has also been boosted ahead of the Croatia game by the return of Alan Dzagoev.
But no details were announced on how or when the reclusive state would dismantle its nuclear program, and Pompeo said he would aim to "fill in" details on the Singapore agreement.
Another smart play would be to use the upcoming North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit as an opportunity for a full-throated joint message to Kim that if he wants to continue to travel and meet world leaders, then he needs to commit to abandoning all nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles or face further sanctions.
That said, Trump still intends for the CD "to be given at a different period".
Russian Federation has invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping to attend the economic forum as well, Yonhap said.
"These are complicated issues, but we made progress on nearly all of the central issues", said Pompeo.
He also accused China, the North's sole, yet powerful, ally, of seeking to undermine the deal. "If those requests were gangster-like, the world is a gangster", he said.
The Japanese top diplomat thanked Pompeo for raising the issue of Japanese nationals abducted to the North decades ago in his meeting with North Koreans.
The president's comments on China appeared to reflect concern that US imposition of punitive tariffs on Chinese imports last week could make China less cooperative in pressuring the North over its nuclear and missile programs. The US has also stopped using the catchphrase of "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearisation" of North Korea that it had insisted upon happening before North Korea gets any relief from a crippling sanctions regime.
