A delegation led by senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol could arrive in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, a diplomatic source told NK News, in order to hold talks with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The high-profile trip – reported first by CNN – is thought to be taking place in order to solidify preparations for a second summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, widely anticipated to be taking place in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi sometime in February or March.
