Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Thursday with a high level North Korean official in New York. Speaking afterward Pompeo said progress had been made but a cautious approach is still taking place.

According to The Hill:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that the United States and North Korea have made “real progress” in the last three days toward setting the conditions that would allow President Trump and leader Kim Jong Un’s summit to move forward.

“Through these series of meetings, I am confident we’re moving in the right direction,” Pompeo said.

Still, Pompeo said he did not know if there would be a definitive decision on whether to have the summit Friday, when a North Korean delegation will travel to Washington to deliver Trump a letter from Kim.

Pompeo was speaking to reporters in New York City after meeting with Kim Yong Chol, a close confidant of Kim’s and the country’s top nuclear weapons negotiator.

Friday will be interesting as the North Korean's head to Washington to deliver Kim Jong Un's letter to President Trump. We keep you updated as this story develops and the contents of the letter become available.
