SEOUL, Jan 15, 2019, Yonhap. Senior North Korean and U.S. officials may meet in Washington, D.C. later this week for consultations on a second summit, a diplomatic source in Seoul said Tuesday, reported the Yonhap.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to greet Kim Yong-chol, a top aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
The source pointed out that the two sides are resolved to have face-to-face negotiations.
“Given Secretary Pompeo’s other commitments, it’s true that (he’s) available for the talks on Jan. 17-18,” the source said.
Pompeo has cut short a trip to the Middle East for a family funeral.
He is likely to attend the Global Chiefs of Mission Conference, to open in Washington on Wednesday, as well.
CNN said President Donald Trump has sent a personal letter to the North’s leader. It added his envoy may visit Washington as early as this week.
