Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Pyongyang to discuss the next steps toward denuclearization following the summit in Singapore.
On Friday, Pompeo was welcomed by North Korea’s Vice Chairman Kim Yong Chol and Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho.
He will be meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un among other officials at the government guest house, where he will stay overnight for the first time.
Pompeo said he hopes to “fill in” details on dismantling the nuclear program and recovering the remains of U.S. soldiers missing from the Korean War.
In a tweet early Friday, Pompeo said his team “worked tirelessly to keep the conversation moving forward.”
