(Worthy News) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has postponed without explanation a planned meeting with a top North Korean official in New York Thursday meant to pump new momentum into talks over Pyongyang’s nuclear arsenal.

The State Department in a statement late Tuesday evening said only the meeting with North Korean Kim Yong Chul, Mr. Pompeo’s counterpart in the nuclear talks, would take place “when [their] respective schedules permit.”

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to being the process of denuclearization on the divided Korean peninsula at a milestone summit in Singapore in June, but the two sides have yet to make much visible progress in the months since as they sparred over continuing U.S. sanctions and the sequence of events toward a final deal.
