Pom­peo claims progress: Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo says he and North Korean dic­ta­tor Kim Jong Un had a pro­duc­tive talk in Py­ongyang this week and agreed to sched­ule an­other sum­mit be­tween Kim and Pres­i­dent Trump. “We can now see a path to where we’ll achieve the ul­ti­mate goal,” Pom­peo said, “which is the full and fi­nal ver­i­fied de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of North Korea.” The sec­re­tary of state did not give any de­tails about what steps would be in­cluded on that path, or how long de­nu­cle­ariza­tion would take. But Pom­peo did say that Kim would al­low international in­spec­tors into his sup­pos­edly de­com­mis­sioned Pung­gye-ri nu­clear test­ing site and the dis­man­tled So­hae mis­sile en­gine test fa­cil­ity— only once the two sides had agreed on lo­gis­tics.
