Korea eyes 2nd summit with USA in Switzerland

"Rocket man", of course, is the nickname Trump famously - and mockingly - bestowed on Kim at a time of heightened tensions between the two countries after long-range missile tests by North Korea.

Pompeo reportedly brought two gifts for Kim from Trump - the CD and a letter, according to The Chosunilbo.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, second from right, greets Kim Yong Chol, second from left, North Korean senior ruling party official and former intelligence chief, as they arrive for a meeting at the Park Hwa Guest House in Pyongyang, North Korea, Friday, July 6, 2018.

At a summit meeting between the two leaders in Singapore last month, Trump learned that Kim didn't know the song, Chosun Ilbo reported. Apparently, Kim admitted to having never heard the song before, which is likely what prompted Trump to make the gesture.

"The more you come, more trust we can build between one another", Kim Yong Chol, North Korea's former spy chief and Pompeo's primary interlocutor for nuclear negotiations, told the USA team at the top of their meeting while reporters were allowed in.

Kim agreed to the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" - a stock phrase favoured by Pyongyang that stops short of longstanding USA demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way.

Regarding fears that the US may have softened its expectations in the denuclearization process, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert - who is accompanying Pompeo to Pyongyang - said their policy had not changed and that they are "committed to a denuclearized North Korea".

"We just wrapped our first meeting of the day", Pompeo told reporters.

According to reports in South Korean media, Mr Pompeo was carrying an Elton John CD, more specifically a copy of John's "Rocket Man".

"I had a very good feeling about him", he said. We'll see. All I can tell you is this. Switzerland has expressed a willingness to host the talks between North Korea and the US.

"Under the Obama administration they were launching missiles, they were testing", Mr. Trump said.
