Singapore - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he met briefly with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho at the ASEAN regional forum on Saturday in Singapore.



  

"I had the chance to speak with my DPRK counterpart FM Ri Yong Ho ASEAN today. We had a quick, polite exchange. Our US delegation also had the opportunity to deliver POTUS reply to Chairman Kim’s letter," Pompeo tweeted.
