South Korean foreign minister in Washington for talks.02

South Korea’s foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha visited Washington. She has largely credited U.S. President Trump with helping bring Kim Jong-Un to the negotiating table.

The meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is ahead of the expected Trump-Kim summit in June. CGTN’s Sean Callebs reports.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington looks forward to continued close cooperation with South Korea on many issues. Both leaders would not comment on U.S. troop presence on the Korean Peninsula.

They instead deferred the issue to an upcoming meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Republic of Korea President Moon Jae-in.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also said Washington would help Pyongyang with its economy if it gives up its nuclear weapons.
