"Well, I am really pleased for this opportunity". Both Koreas have expressed a desire to officially establish peace between their nations, which remain technically at war, and Kim Jong Un reiterated his promise to denuclearize in exchange for peace and a lifting of intense sanctions-a vow Trump readily accepted. "Thanks for hosting me and my team @StateDept". He left Pyongyang in July hailing progress, only for North Korea to denounce him for making "gangster-like demands". On that occasion, he did not meet Kim.

After Seoul, Pompeo ends his trip tomorrow in China, North Korea's political and economic lifeline.

The trip will be Pompeo's fourth to Pyongyang, as the contours of a possibly historic US-North Korea deal take shape. He said in Seoul that he had "a good, productive conversation" with Kim. President Trump said we still have a lot to do. 'It was another step forward.

"Then we are also going to set up the next summit", said Pompeo.

Interpol president Meng Hongwei missing in China
It was not clear whether Mr Meng had travelled to China on official business or for personal reasons. French police are investigating what is officially termed in France a "worrying disappearance".

While the USA demands North Korea submit a detailed inventory of its nuclear and missile programs, Pyongyang insists that Washington first provide a security guarantee by declaring an official end to the Korean War before a possible peace treaty is signed.

At the heart of the impasse has been two fundamentally different approaches to denuclearization.

NBC News reported South Korea said in a statement that the meeting could point to further U.S. The United States has called for a comprehensive accord and strict enforcement of sanctions on North Korea in the meantime. It has not taken any steps to halt nuclear weapons or missile development.

Trump, tweeting from Washington, cited progress on agreements he made with Kim at their June meeting and said, "I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim again, in the near future".

Prior to this year, leads of North and South Korea had only met twice, but since April, they have met three times-most recently last month, when they drew up a new agreement.
