U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo called Wednesday for a new round of talks with North Korea with the goal of ridding the North of nuclear weapons by the end of Donald Trump’s first term, saying he was heartened by progress made at a summit this week between the two Koreas.

In a statement, Pompeo said the U.S. welcomed Kim Jong Un’s promise to dismantle a missile test site -- under the eye of international inspectors -- and move to shutter North Korea’s main Yongbyon nuclear production site if the U.S. takes what the North calls “corresponding measures.”
