Both President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un believe "substantive progress" can be made at a second summit meeting, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday, adding that arrangements for the leaders to meet are close to being finalized. First, he was forced to negotiate on the tarmac in Pyongyang over who could attend his meetings with Kim.
The first Trump-Kim summit took place in June in Singapore.
Pompeo's hurdles were highest in Pyongyang.
Stephen Biegun, the USA special representative for North Korea who accompanied Pompeo to Pyongyang, said he offered to meet his counterpart, Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui, "as soon as possible" and they were in discussion over time and place.

Mr Pompeo said "significant progress" had been made towards denuclearisation.

The North Korean leader also invited inspectors to visit the Punggye-ri nuclear test facility, which Pyongyang took apart in May, "to confirm that it has been irreversibly dismantled", the State Department said. But when asked when inspectors might arrive, Pompeo offered few specifics.
Pompeo did not say when inspectors would be allowed to Punggye-ri, and the State Department did not respond when asked if they would be Americans or others from worldwide nuclear bodies.

Wang said the United States has been escalating trade tensions between the two sides and dealt with Taiwan in a way China finds objectionable. Bandow cited a report by Christian Solidarity Worldwide that stated, "Among other basic human rights denied to the people of North Korea, freedom of religion or belief is largely non-existent".

"We can't rule out the possibility that Washington. may move in the direction of partial easing of sanctions based on progress in denuclearisation", he said.

But Wang retorted: "The strategic dialogue was not called off by the Chinese".
"I am really pleased for this opportunity". But he and Xi could meet on the sidelines of the G-20 meeting in Buenos Aires later in November. But that wasn't an advance on comments Trump made last month in NY, when he said he wanted to meet Kim "very soon".
