>> US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo met North Korean officials in Pyongyang on Friday hoping to quote, fill in details on denuclearization. At the Singapore Summit last month, Kim Jong-un made a broad commitment to work toward denuclearization, but fell short on details on implementation. Now Pompeo was trying to hammer down just how the North would dismantle its nuclear program.
US intelligence officials told Reuters the secretary would try to agree on at least an initial list of nuclear sites, and an inventory that could be checked against the available intelligence. Some officials in the State and Defense Department and intelligence agencies are worried that Trump has put himself at a disadvantage by overstating the results of the Singapore summit.
>> This is complete denuclearization.>> But US officials told Reuters there had been no sign of a breakthrough and little progress towards even defining the key terms of any agreement. Pompeo was also working to recover the remains of US troops missing from the Korean War.
