US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in Pyongyang on a two day visit “ to press leader Kim Jong-un for details on his plans for denuclearisation.”
It was a polite and courteous welcome, Korean style.
But with Pompeo in charge of negotiations, what are the prospects?
Back in October 2017, Pompeo hinted in no uncertain terms when he was head of the CIA:
“If Kim Jong-un suddenly dies, don’t ask me about it … “
“With respect, if Kim Jong-un should vanish, given the history of the CIA, I’m just not going to talk about it,”
“We are going to become a much more vicious agency…”
