Pompeo to visit Japan, SKorea on denuclearisation

Agency News

Washington, Jun 11: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to visit Japan and South Korea in late June to discuss denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, said the US State Department.
Pompeo would join US President Donald Trump to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Group of 20 (G20) Summit slated for June 28-29 in Osaka, Japan, said the State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus at a press briefing on Monday.
Following the G20 Summit, Pompeo would accompany Trump to visit South Korea, where they will meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on issues of denuclearisation and bilateral alliance, according to Ortagus.
The denuclearisation negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington have been stalled since the second summit between top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un and Trump ended with no agreement in February in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi. (UNI)
