TASS, May 9. US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has arrived in Pyongyang to discuss details of an upcoming summit meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, according to Reuters.

The agency also reported that State Secretary Pompeo is also set to discuss details of the release of three American prisoners in North Korea.

The US White House announced in early March that President Donald Trump had been for some time preparing for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un gathering information from his counsellors and intelligence services.

Last month, Kim Jong-un was cited by KCNA news agency as stating that Pyongyang halted nuclear tests and joined the global nuclear disarmament process in line with its new strategy to build socialist economy.

North Korea announced its withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1993 and completed the withdrawal in January 2003. To date, the Communist state has held six nuclear tests. Last September, Pyongyang announced a successful test of a hydrogen bomb and proclaimed itself a nuclear power.

In early February, North Korea rolled out its new Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) at a Pyongyang military parade. The North Korean military demonstrated at least four launchers with Hwasong-15 ICBMs painted in their typical black hue and also several prime movers with Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missiles.
