Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is denying claims the that U.S. lacks the technical expertise to denuclearize North Korea.

In a press briefing in Singapore Monday, Pompeo said the White House has met with more than 100 experts from various fields, who have advised the Trump administration on the best strategies to negotiate with North Korea.

His statement follows a report from the New York Times, which criticized the White House for lacking a scientific advisory team.

“It is the case that we are prepared to make security assurances necessary for the North Koreans to engage in that denuclearization,” stated Pompeo. “That is we’re prepared to take actions that will provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearization isn’t something that ends badly for them, indeed, just the opposite, that it leads to a brighter better future for the North Korean people.”

Pompeo added, President Trump is very prepared for his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un and is eager to achieve real progress.
