WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States is engaged in patient diplomacy with North Korea, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Wednesday.

"We're engaged in patient diplomacy, but we will not let this drag out to no end," Pompeo said regarding ongoing talks with North Korea.

Pompeo stressed that the goal of the United States was for North Korea's complete verifiable and irreversible denuclearization by end of Trump's term, "more quickly if possible".
