Peace, inter-Korean co-op must move in tandem with denuclearization: Pompeo

Secretary of State reiterates position ahead of key U.S.-ROK talks in Washington D.C.

Peace on the Korean peninsula and inter-Korean cooperation must move in conjunction with North Korea's denuclearization, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press briefing in Washington D.C., Pompeo reiterated U.S. expectations moving forward and said that he believes the South Korean government is in "complete" agreement, this in spite of recent signs of policy differences between the two allies.
