THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Pompeo arrives in Pyongyang

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in the North Korean capital on Friday as Washington looks to come home with a roadmap for the regime's nuclear disarmament.

Pompeo tweeted on Thursday that he is looking forward to continuing their work "toward the final, verified denuclearization" of North Korea," as agreed to by Chairman Kim (Jong-un)."

Pompeo is scheduled to be in Pyongyang for around a day-and-a-half, most of which time will be spent in meetings with North Korean officials, including with the North Korean leader. The key issues will include securing a declaration of all of North Korea's nuclear arsenal, a verification regime for dismantlement and a timeline for denuclearization.

His delegation, according to ABC News, includes State Department. According to Japan's Kyodo News Agency, Pompeo, upon his arrival at Yokota Air Base, said he looks forward to North Korea's complete denucleariztion and that he hopes to fill in the details of the agreements reached at the June 12th Singapore summit.
