Goal of next U.S.-DPRK summit to ‘reduce threat’ from N. Korean nukes: Pompeo

Secretary of State stresses Kim’s “commitment to denuclearize,” despite recent DPRK rebuke

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called into several radio programs Thursday, providing a brief update to negotiations with North Korea just hours after DPRK state media released a strongly-worded rebuke of U.S. denuclearization goals.

Mentioning the DPRK in two of his four appearances, Pompeo reiterated expectations of “Chairman Kim’s commitment to denuclearize,” but also characterized talks as part of a “pathway forward toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
