On October 8, Pompeo will meet with his Chinese counterpart in Beijing to discuss "bilateral, regional and global issues."

Earlier, on June 12, US President Donald Trump and Kim met in Singapore, where they reached an agreement that stipulates North Korea will denuclearize in exchange for a freeze of US-South Korean military drills and potential sanctions relief.

No concrete timeframe was announced for achieving these goals. And there is no progress for now. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the second US-North Korea high-level summit is more likely to happen after October.
