Pompeo discusses Trump-Kim summit outcome with Moon
Seoul: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday metwith South Korean President Moon Jae-in here to discuss the outcome of the historic summit between American President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
According to the South Korean Presidential office, Pompeo told Moon at the start of the meeting that there is still "a great deal of work to do" and that he trusts that both sides will be able to cooperate and bring peace to the Korean Peninsula, Efe news reported.
He thanked Moon, who has met with Kim twice since April, for his mediation between North Korea and the US, saying that if it had not been for Moon's effort, the talks between Trump and Kim would not have been possible.
Moon said he was satisfied with the outcome of the summit and what is most important is that it has allowed the world to escape from the threats of a nuclear war and long-range missiles.
However, there was no mention of the suspension of annual South Korean-US military maneuvers, which Trump unexpectedly announced on June 12 at the end of the summit.
