US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he’s very hopeful for a quick resumption in nuclear talks with North Korea despite the North’s recent weapons tests.
Pompeo tells reporters accompanying him to an Asian security forum in Thailand that some preliminary work on a new round has been done but no dates have been set. He says he’s waiting to see if North Korea’s foreign minister comes to the meeting in Bangkok and is confident the two will see each other if he does. The lead US negotiator will also be in Bangkok.
Talks have been stalled since President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s summit in February in Hanoi but they agreed to resume them when they met at the Korean Demilitarized Zone in June.
