US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had made unspecified progress on Sunday toward an agreement for Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons. There was no immediate indication, though, if Pompeo managed to arrange a second summit between Kim and President Donald Trump.
