Pompeo holds more North Korea talks, both sides seeking to ‘clarify’



U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a second day of talks in North Korea on Saturday in an attempt to agree details on dismantling the North’s nuclear program after both sides said they had things to “clarify” from the previous day.

Pompeo spent his first night in the North Korean capital in three visits so far this year before leaving the government guest house where he stayed to make a secure phone call to update U.S. President Donald Trump on the talks.

He then sat down again with Kim Yong Chol, the top North Korean party official and former spy agency chief with whom he played a key role in arranging the summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12.
