Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said the U.S. has “a ways to go” to achieve the goal of a nuclear-free North Korea and the isolated country is still violating United Nations Security Council resolutions connected to the issue.

Pompeo made the remarks to reporters as he flew from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, where he attended a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and planned to press countries to keep enforcing sanctions against the North. Officials have expressed concern that those restrictions have weakened since President Donald Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore in June.
