“No dispute” between North Korea, U.S. over denuclearization definition: Pompeo

Secretary of State hoping working-level talks with DPRK will begin "in a couple of weeks"

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday denied a major gap between the U.S. and North Korea over the definition of denuclearization, in an interview in which he also expressed hopes that planned working-level talks between the two countries will be able to begin "in a couple of weeks."

Speaking with radio presenter Buck Sexton during an official visit to Mexico City and following months of stalemate in negotiations between the two countries, the Secretary of State insisted that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had committed to fully relinquishing his nuclear arsenal.
