North Korean denuclearization is “joint objective” for U.S. and Russia: Pompeo

Washington and Moscow's top diplomats say they support "denuclearization," but appear to differ on what the word means

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the end of North Korea's nuclear weapons program a "joint objective" for Washington and Moscow on Tuesday at a press conference with the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov.

The two top diplomats met at the State Department and addressed reporters on a range of foreign policy issues, including North Korea, on a busy day in Washington that also featured the release of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and a massive North American trade deal.
