Pompeo meets on Thursday with a North Korean colleague in New York

Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo will travel to New York on Thursday to meet his North Korean counterpart Kim Yong Chol.

The State Department says North Korea's leading US envoy, Stephen Biegun, will work with Pompeo and Kim to discuss efforts for what she calls "the achievement of North Korea's final, fully verified denuclearization."

During the weekend, North Korea criticized the US for its continued support for sanctions, suggesting that nuclear development could resume. Pyongyang accused Washington of derailing promises made by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump at their June summit in Singapore.

The US State Department says Pompeo and Kim will discuss "all four pillars of the joint statement of the Singapore Summit", including denuclearization.
