US, North Korea discuss denuclearization

(VOVWORLD) -US and North Korean officials met in the truce village of Panmunjom on Sunday for talks about denuclearization prior to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Pyongyang this week. 

US State Department officials say US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim led the US delegation. South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported that the North’s delegation was led by Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui.

At a recent summit in Singapore, US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula in exchange for ensured security. But experts say the process will take much time.
