Pompeo visited Tokyo on Friday and is also due to travel to Beijing before returning home on Monday.
Earlier, Pompeo said he and Kim Jong-un have made further progress. On that occasion, he did not meet Kim.

Mr Pompeo travelled on to South Korea for a meeting with President Moon Jae-in following his meeting in Pyongyang.

When the average U.S. voter "no longer hears the president saying "fire and fury" but hears him saying peace, they believe he has actually made progress towards it, even if arms control people say we've made no progress of a material nature at all", Paal said.
North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations last month that continued sanctions were deepening the North's mistrust of the United States and there was no way Pyongyang would give up its nuclear weapons unilaterally under such circumstances. USA officials have thus far said sanctions will remain in place until the North's denuclearization is fully verified.
