Kim Jong Un wants to meet Donald Trump in Switzerland

"But for eight months there's been not one rocket or missile launch or there hasn't been a nuclear test", Trump offered on progress with North Korea. When Trump asked Kim if he knew the song, released in 1972, the 35-year-old said he did not.

A man walks past a large monitor in Akihabara, Tokyo, on June 12, 2018, broadcasting a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

No further meetings between the two leaders have been scheduled since their historic talks in Singapore last month, but rumours are swirling that the United States could hold out the possibility of another meeting as a "carrot" to encourage the North Koreans to meet their commitment to denuclearize. Trump reportedly asked Kim if he had ever heard the song and Kim said he had not.

Late last month, 38 North, a USA -based North Korea watchdog, reported the North was making improvements at one of the country's nuclear research centres at a "rapid pace" despite Kim's pledge to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

Mr Pompeo arrived in Pyongyang on Friday for a two-day visit - his third trip to the isolated state since taking the secretary of state job in April - and he was met at the airport by senior official Kim Yong Chol.

"If they're serious, then we can get down to the business of defining the terms of final denuclearization", said one official.

"On this trip I'm seeking to fill in some details on those commitments and continue the momentum toward implementation of what the two leaders promised each other and the world".

According to reports in South Korean media, Mr Pompeo was carrying an Elton John CD, more specifically a copy of John's "Rocket Man".

He will be meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un among other officials at the government guest house, where he will stay overnight for the first time.

In the meantime, Mr Pompeo and Mr Trump have vowed to keep in place the global economic sanctions that they believe forced the North to the negotiating table in the first place.

The lawmaker's remarks come as Pompeo met with officials to "fill in" details on how to dismantle the North's nuclear program and recover the remains of US troops missing from the Korean War. I really believe that he sees a different future for North Korea.

"The more you come, the more trust we can build between one another".

But following talks on Sunday between US envoy Sung Kimand North Korean counterparts, this "CVID" language appears to have disappeared from the State Department lexicon.
