With new special envoy, Pompeo heading to N Korea amid 'deadlock' over denuclearization

(Worthy News) - Amid what North Korea calls a "deadlock" in denuclearization talks, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Pyongyang next week, with the new Special Representative for North Korea, Steve Biegun, in tow.

This will be Pompeo's fourth trip to Pyongyang, his third as the top U.S. diplomat. But it comes after North Korea said talks have been 'derailed' after the U.S. demanded the country reveal its secret nuclear facilities -- which North Korea called "a fiction." A State Department spokesperson declined to comment on private diplomatic conversations.

Pompeo announced Thursday that Biegun will direct U.S. policy on North Korea, handle the day-to-day negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea, and be the point person for other countries in the region. [ Source: ABC News (Read More...) ]
