Korean leader invites pope to Pyongyang

  • US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un discussed denuclearisation steps to be taken by the North

"We demand that the USA side stop this kind of mistaken action", he said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has invited Pope Francis to visit Pyongyang, a gesture created to highlight peace efforts, South Korea's presidential office said on Tuesday. The state-run Korean Central News Agency is calling the talks between Pompeo and Kim "productive and wonderful".

Pompeo thanked South Korea for its role in the negotiations with the Pyongyang administration about nuclear weapons.

The Vatican said in a statement that the pope will receive Moon at noon (1000 GMT) on October 17. North Korea claims to have destroyed the site.

The official said the timetable may change depending on inter-Korean relations or the schedule of the second U.S.

Pyongyang in May failed to follow through with its promises to allow inspectors to assess its demolition of Punggye-ri in what has become a roadblock in the country's denuclearization commitment, which was reiterated in June after a meeting between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Singapore. Progress made on Singapore Summit Agreements!

"We have great concerns about the actions that China has taken, and I look forward to having the opportunity to discuss each of those today because this is an incredibly important relationship". He was greeted at Pyongyang's airport by North Korea's minister of sports, Kim Il Guk.

Dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang subsequently broke down over a lack of progress, and apparent reluctance on the part of the U.S.to agree to simultaneous measures such as officially ending the Korean War in advance of the North's denuclearization.
