The U.S. aims to persuade Kim to give up his country's nuclear arsenal, and Trump has engaged in what he calls a "maximum pressure" campaign to ratchet up sanctions on North Korea and lean on other nations to cut diplomatic ties. Trump's national security adviser John Bolton said in April that North Korea must give up all of its nuclear weapons, nuclear fuel, and ballistic missiles before sanctions relief or any other us concessions.
Pompeo said there would need to be "complete" and "verifiable" denuclearization, suggesting it would involve inspections to ensure the North's compliance.
The American said he had "good" and "substantive" conversations with leader Kim Jong Un during his visit.
Pompeo stressed the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would require a "robust verification" program by the U.S. and other countries.
"We're very clear that the sanctions remain in place until and unless we see visible meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearization track".
"I think there is complete agreement about what the ultimate objectives are", Pompeo said, though he declined to offer more detail.
"The next few weeks will be critical, requiring air-tight coordination between our two countries", Kang said, noting that South Korean President Moon Jae-in would be in Washington to see Mr. Trump later this month. "It is extremely important for North Korea to normalize diplomatic relations with Japan to walk along the right track as part of worldwide society, while accepting its requirements". Therefore, she said, any change in the size of the USA forces in the South Korea should not be on the table at the summit.
Pompeo gave a toast at a luncheon in North Korea hosted by senior official Kim Yong Chol, calling the man a great partner in making the summit a success.
He said he had tried to persuade Kim to denuclearize by explaining that historically the United States had often become close partners with its former adversaries. "For decades, we have been adversaries". "I really think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world", he said of Kim. "I'm proud to stand behind that", acting Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Heather Nauert told CNN Friday.
