Mike Pompeo keeps North Korea negotiations going with prospect of declaration ending Korean War before Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un summit - CBS News

Given the Trump administration's goal of a complete, verifiable denuclearization of North Korea during President Trump's first term, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is eager to maintain U.S.-North Korean engagement.
