Pompeo is scheduled to meet his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, Taro Kono and Kang Kyung-wha, in Tokyo on Sunday.
Außenministerin Kang Kyung-wha hat am Montag mit ihrem US-Amtskollegen Mike Pompeo ein Telefongespräch geführt.
Mr Kono told a news conference alongside US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung Wha that while precise details of the halt in joint war games are to be ironed out between the US and South Korea, „we understand that any pause in exercise is contingent upon DPRK action towards denuclearisation“.
Pompeo wird morgen in Seoul erwartet. Am Donnerstag wird er Präsident Moon Jae-in einen Höflichkeitsbesuch abstatten.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday his country remains committed to dialogue with North Korea despite President Donald Trump’s decision to call off his summit talks with the communist nation’s leader next month, according to Seoul’s foreign ministry.
Pompeo made the remarks in his phone conversation with Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to exchange views on related situations and coordinate a strategy.
