Trump confirms Pompeo talks in North Korea

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is confirming that his CIA director met with Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon) in North Korea “last week” in anticipation of their potential summit.

Trump tweets that Mike Pompeo’s (pahm-PAY’-oh’s) meeting “went very smoothly and a good relationship was formed.”

The president says summit details are being worked out and that “Denuclearization will be a great thing for World, but also for North Korea!”

Trump had said on Tuesday that talks between the U.S. and North Korea were underway at an “extremely high level.”

The summit is expected to take place by early June. Trump says five locations are under consideration.
