Pompeo heading to North Korea for nuclear talks

3 July 2018

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo leaves for North Korea this week, hoping to hammer out a roadmap to denuclearization. It's been three weeks since Kim Jong Un agreed to abandon his country's nuclear weapons program.

But there's been no actual plan on when or how that might happen. NBC says U.S. intelligence believes North Korea is actually expanding fuel production for its weapons. But White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders insisted that everything is still on track. A source told Reuters that if Pompeo makes progress on a deal, the White House would be open to another summit between Trump and Kim.
