Pompeo ‘still in charge’ of N. Korea negotiations
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday he was “still in charge of the team” negotiating with North Korea over its nuclear program. The statement came after Pyongyang demanded he be removed from the talks. “Nothing has changed,” Pompeo told a news conference. “We continue to work… Still in charge of the team,” he said. North Korea this week demanded that Pompeo be excluded from future talks after he apparently encouraged President Donald Trump to stand firm during a summit in Hanoi with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, AFP reports.
