Pompeo begins North Korea trip to firm up denuclearization plans


The secretary of state also plans to travel to Tokyo to meet with Japanese officials before continuing on to Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates and finally Belgium to meet President Donald Trump at the NATO Summit next week.

Declining to speak on intelligence matters, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters last week: “We’re in a good spot. We’re all keeping a close eye. The secretary has been very clear and very blunt with the North Koreans about what he expects.”

The meetings Thursday will be the highest-level discussions between the U.S. and North Korea since the historic summit between Trump and Kim in Singapore last month.
