Pompeo: Unclear whether Trump-Kim summit will go ahead

New York - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was cautiously optimistic after talks with North Korean ex-spy chief Kim Yong Chol, saying he didn't know whether a potential summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would go ahead.

"Real progress" has been made in the last 72 hours towards setting the conditions for a summit, Pompeo said, but he added that he did't know whether the June 12 summit would still take place.
North Korea appears to be considering making a "strategic shift" towards denuclearization, he said.
Kim Yong Chol is planning to travel to Washington on Friday to deliver a personal letter from Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said.
