Pompeo Arrives in Pyongyang for Meeting with Kim on Denuclearization

SEOUL – United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Pyongyang on Sunday for a meeting with North Korean leader KIm Jong-un to discuss the regime’s denuclearization process.

The aircraft carrying Pompeo left from Tokyo and landed at Sunan airport in Pyongyang before noon, according to South Korean news channel YTN, citing sources close to Pompeo’s team.

Pompeo was also expected to meet with North Korean intelligence chief Kim Yong-chol, a key figure in the recent rapprochement with the US.

Details of Pompeo’s meeting in Pyongyang were not expected to be released Sunday, as he said that he would avoid speaking about the negotiations so as not compromise the process.

The dialogue on nuclear disarmament started after Trump and Kim’s first summit in June, but has since stalled.

The White House called for stronger actions of the part of regime to demonstrate its willingness to denuclearize, while Pyongyang claimed that it would not abandon its nuclear program unless the US lifted economic sanctions and signed a peace treaty with the regime to ensure its survival.

Pompeo will travel to Seoul later on Sunday to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to discuss the results of the inter-Korean summit held last month and the state of the dialogue process with Pyongyang.

Pompeo will conclude his Asian tour Monday in China, where his preliminary plans include meetings with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, and the State Councilor, Yang Jiechi, amid an ongoing trade war between the two powers.
