Speaking alongside South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-Wha at the State Department, Pompeo said Friday he thinks the USA and North Korea are largely on the same page in expectations for the June 12 encounter, which will see a sitting us president meet the leader of North Korea for the first time.
Speaking early Thursday on an air base tarmac with the former detainees by his side, Trump called it a "great honor" to welcome the men to the USA, but said "the true honor is going to be if we have a victory in getting rid of nuclear weapons".
Under an American flag and dark night sky, President Donald Trump personally welcomed home three American detainees Thursday morning after they were released from North Korea.
It said the three Americans appeared to be in good condition and were all able to board the plane in Pyongyang without assistance.
Trump announced on May 10 that he would meet with Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12. But he said he thinks Kim has a good understanding of what the USA means by all of that.
Their plane made brief stops at a United States air base in Japan and in Alaska en route to Washington.
Additionally, Pompeo noted that his talks with Kim Jong Un were "warm" and "constructive", as he promised the leader us economic help if North Korea indeed denuclearizes the peninsula.
One of the detainees was jailed in 2015, the other two have been in prison for just over a year.
