US ready to resume talks with North Korea

(VOVWORLD) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday the U.S. was prepared to resume talks with North Korea “at a moment’s notice” if the North signaled it wanted to continue discussions regarding denuclearization. 

Mr. Pompeo said he hoped that a letter recently sent by President Donald Trump to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would provide a good foundation for the US to begin to continue these important discussions with the North Koreans to denuclearize the peninsula. The North’s state-run news agency on Sunday described Trump’s letter to Kim as “excellent”.

The second Trump-Kim summit, held last February in Hanoi, ended in failure and formal talks between the two nations broke down. Mr. Pompeo, who spoke to reporters before leaving Washington for the Middle East, said he hoped functional  talks with North Korea would resume.
