US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to visit North Korea next week
Updated : June 28, 2018 09:17 PM IST
Pompeo, who has been charged with leading negotiations aimed at persuading North Korea to give up a nuclear program that has been the source of international tension for decades, traveled twice to North Korea to set up the Singapore summit.
On Wednesday, Pompeo told lawmakers he was confident Pyongyang understood the scope of the US desire for North Korea's complete denuclearization as the two countries negotiate after the summit.
Critics say the Singapore agreement was short on detail and Trump made too many concessions to Kim, especially agreeing to stop military exercises with South Korea, which the North has long sought.
