Trump confirms Pompeo met with North Korea's Kim Jong Un

Trump confirms Pompeo met with North Korea's Kim Jong Un

Pompeo's visit and the Tweet provide the strongest sign yet about Trump's willingness to become the first serving USA president ever to meet a North Korean leader, amid a protracted standoff over the North's nuclear and missile programs it pursues in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

"While Japan and South Korea would like us to go back into TPP, I don't like the deal for the United States", Mr Trump tweeted on Tuesday, following a dinner with Mr Abe and their respective wives at Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.

Japan's politically sensitive trade surplus with the USA edged down in March, government data showed Wednesday, as the two countries' leaders held talks over the thorny issue of bilateral trade.

There is still no date for a summit between the US and North Korea, although Mr. Trump said five locations are under consideration.

He said the tariffs had brought many countries to the negotiating able and that he may take them off of steel and aluminum imported from Japan if the two countries can come to a trade agreement.

Trump is set to meet with the North Korean dictator later this year, no specific date or location has been released by the White House.

As the two men sat for dinner Tuesday, it was revealed that Mike Pompeo, Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director and pick for secretary of state, had traveled to North Korea for preliminary talks with Kim early this month.

Trump earlier said that the inter-Korean summit could, with his "blessing", explore a peace treaty to formally end the conflict. Trump pulled out of talks just three days into his presidency.

The summit with Abe comes as the President prepares for historic talks with Kim, a prospect that Abe has warned will come with risks.

But on the issue of trade, the two leaders did not walk away seeing eye to eye. Trump is huddling with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his private Florida club this week to assuage Japanese concerns about the meeting. Trump and Abe will also hold a news conference before the president and first lady host the Japanese delegations for dinner.

Pyongyang has acknowledged abducting 13 Japanese, while Tokyo maintains North Korea abducted at least 17 in the 1970s and 1980s to train agents in Japanese language and culture to spy on South Korea. Five have been returned to Japan.

North Korea says eight others died and denies the remaining four entered its territory - results that the families and Japanese officials say can not be trusted.
