WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. is still working toward holding a historic summit with North Korea on June 12.
Pompeo was speaking Tuesday after President Donald Trump met with the leader of South Korea and told reporters his face-to-face with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un in Singapore could be delayed.
Pompeo says the State Department and White House are continuing to make sure they are “fully prepared” for a summit with the same aims: achieving the denuclearization of North Korea and creating conditions so it no longer threatens the world.
He is declining to estimate the likelihood of the Trump-Kim meeting happening.
Pompeo has met with Kim twice in Pyongyang, the highest-ranking U.S. official to do so since 2000.
