Speaking to Fox News, Mr. Pompeo said the US State Department has had a number of conversations with the North Koreans and that Chairman Kim committed to getting their teams back to the negotiating table.  

The US Secretary of State added that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had committed to denuclearization in Singapore during a summit with US President Donald Trump last June. According to Mr. Pompeo, the two sides still have a number of conversations and it’s time to begin to deliver on that so that the North Korean people can, in fact, have that brighter future that President Trump has talked about now for a year and a half.
