President Trump and NKorea Chairman Kim Jong Un likely will meet for a 3rd Summit Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday.
President Trump and Chairman Kim left their last Summit, in Hanoi, Vietnam, with a “deeper understanding of each other,” Secretary Pompeo said in a TV interview Friday, “The positions that the two sides had, the two leaders were able to make progress in that respect.”
In February, the meeting ended after NKorea wanted the United States to stop all sanctions in exchange for shuttering 1 of its nuclear sites. President Trump said no and walked out.
Secretary Pompeo said Friday the United States knew negotiations would take some time, but the administration is still determined to make a deal with NKorea and is “convinced the NKoreans are determined as well” to denuclearize.
He added that The Trump Administration is “incredibly clear” that sanctions on NKorea will “not be lifted until our ultimate objective is achieved.”
SKorean President Moon Jae-in plans to visit the White House next week, where he will meet with Secretary Pompeo and President Trump.
