US and North Korea agree to hold second nuclear summit
Text size Aa Aa

The US and North Korea have agreed to hold a second leaders' summit to discuss

ongoing efforts toward denuclearization of the Korean Penninsula.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in Pyongyang on Sunday and said he had a

"productive conversation" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Earlier in the day, Pompeo also held talks with South Korea's Moon Jae-in, who said he hoped the proposed second summit would make "decisive progress" toward denuclearlization and peace.

Moon held his own talks with Kim last month in a bid to salvage stumbling negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington after US President Trump called off Pompeo's planned visit to the North citing lack of progress.
