NEW YORK — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cited progress Thursday toward salvaging a historic summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and what he called the “once in a lifetime opportunity” of ending the nuclear weapons threat from North Korea.

Following two days of talks with Kim’s right-hand aide, Vice Chairman Kim Yong Chol, Pompeo spoke as though the summit Trump had canceled last week was likely to be reinstated, but still framed it as an “expected” first meeting.

……..Kim Yong Chol will travel to Washington on Friday to deliver a “personal letter” from Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said, adding that he does not know whether that means a formal announcement is likely Friday that the summit is back on. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/pompeo-and-north-korean-official-will-try-to-salvage-nuclear-summit-with-new-york-skyline-below-them/2018/05/30/74d1cb81-553e-4e92-acda-9b6aa88e57c1_story.html?utm_term=.bd392938f593
